Fight Boredom Zine Residency: The application is here and this year’s residents were announced here HOWEVER, due to last-minute cancellations, there are no residencies this year after all. Sorry to get your hopes up, readers! Over the coming months, I’ll be thinking about ways to make the residency better (or maybe just moving on to a new project, we’ll see how it goes).
