2013 Fight Boredom Zine Residency Participants Announced

June: Bee resides in St. John’s, Newfoundland and has been making zines (including perzines Dreamdate and Precious Little, a zine-making guide for pre-teens and teenagers called Zines Are Keen, and a zine about sexual assault called Lolita), playing in bands, and generally participating in feminist punk culture for a decade. She’s into work by Alison Bechdel, Virgina Woolf, Adrienne Rich, Dave Roche, and Cindy Crabb. During her stay, she’ll be writing about her experiences with sex work as a young, white, educated, poor woman.

September: Audrey resides in Clermont-Ferrand, France. She makes comics, crafts, and patches with slogans, paints bloody watercolours, and was a member of The Hand Clapping Girls, a group booking local DIY shows. She likes the work of Sylvia Plath, Patti Smith, Nan Goldin, and Maranda Elizabeth. During her stay, she’ll be making a comic zine about her diagnosis with borderline and the depression that followed. Audrey réside à Clermont-Ferrand, France. Elle fait des bandes-déssinées, des crafts, et des patches à slogans, peint des aquarelles sanglantes, et elle a été une membre de The Hand Clapping Girls, un groupe qui organisait des shows locaux dans un squat auto-géré.

October: Jami Sailor resides in Chicago, Illinois and is a teen librarian who has been self-publishing and reading zines since the mid-90s. Her current titles include Your Secretary and Hex Key. She co-authored Archiving the Underground (with Jenna Brager) about zines in libraries, archives, and academia. During her residency, Jami hopes to complete the final issue of her long running zine, No Better Voice, which will center on the concepts of home and place. This will be Jami’s first visit to Montreal.

Finally, motivation to renew my passport!
