In 2012, for LUMMOX #1, groups of poets who came from the same regions held readings from this issue to promote sales. A series of events held in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Denver, Colorado and Los Angeles County, California (Venice, Downey and Santa Ana) were either co-sponsored or curated by Lummox.
Then in 2013 for LUMMOX #2, similar readings were held the SoCal towns of Venice, Downey, Long Beach, Canoga Park and Orange. A reading also took place in Sacramento, CA. Other readings happened in Pittsburgh, PA and Boulder and Denver, CO.
