Published four times a year, each issue of Broken Pencil features reviews of hundreds of zines and small press books, plus comics, excerpts from the best of the underground press, interviews, original fiction and commentary on all aspects of the indie arts.

The sensory experience on the ground floor of any urban environment helps define the culture of a city, what people think about it, what they remember and what they love. That’s why improving the sidewalk experience is just one of many initiatives Downtown Phoenix Inc. (DPI) has created to cultivate a better downtown.
And we’re not alone. In addition to focusing money and manpower on sidewalk activation through marketing, events and the amazing work of the Downtown Phoenix Partnership, we’re working with business leaders from our membership organization, Phoenix Community Alliance, and a host of volunteer and community organizations to create a more walkable, interesting and vibrant community.
