Cornwall Zine Library in collaboration with Fish Factory Arts would like to offer the opportunity for zine makers to come for between one and four weeks between June 2nd - 30th this summer to make zines. The Fish Factory will provide you with accommodation, a desk in our shared open plan studio space, access to printer & printing area and other materials.

Cornwall Zine Library is housed at The Fish Factory in Penryn. The 'Fish' is an art space, with exhibitions and  events in the gallery, artist  studios, darkroom, shop and vegan café.

We're offering residencies of between 1 - 4 weeks at the Fish this June , including accommodation in our residency space at the 'Little Fish'.

We would love to offer this opportunity for free, but as a not for profit CIC that has been hit hard by Covid we're having to charge £150 per week (this includes your accommodation). Please contact us if you will not be able to take this opportunity due to cost, between us we may be able to come up with a way to help.

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 part of your time here will be spent discovering what's in our library and contributing to it with your ideas and your zines.  You are welcome to run workshops or give a talk while you are here - this is encouraged but by no means essential.
