Cornwall Zine Library Residency

[email protected]

Deadline Saturday 13 April 2019

Cornwall Zine Library in collaboration with Fish Factory Arts would like to offer the opportunity for two zine makers to come, one week each, and make zines. The Fish Factory would provide you with a desk, access to dot matrix, and printing area, or if you’re like us, we will lend you our typewriter and stapler.

The Fish Factory is where Cornwall Zine Library is housed. It is an art space, with gallery walls, artist’s studios and vegan café. Up for grabs is a weeks no fee residency at the Fish, including a weeks no fee accommodation. All you’d need is cash for getting here and back and pasties. Penryn is a small Cornish village along the river Fal running into the sea. There is a post office, two chip shops, a library, a bunch of artists and a couple of pubs. You’ll love it.

Making zines is the easy bit, it’s the dissemination which is both tricky and important. That’s what zine libraries are for and why zine residencies are radical, to form connections between zine makers all over the place.

We are offering two one week zine residencies from the 11-17th May and 1-7th June. Specify which week you’d be interested in in your application. Deadline for applications is 13th April and you will hear by 20th April.
