A lot of my zine librarian and zine making homies are at the American Librarian Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas this weekend. I am not, partially because, Ugh: Las Vegas, but I am jealous that they all get to hang out together at the Zine Pavilion.

Remember the promise and betrayal of the #AmtrakResidency and its heinous terms of service? (Note: they've taken the original ToS page down, but there's a post about it on PBS.) Well, your pals at the Barnard Zine Library and Archives are offering an alternative residency--on the F-Train and the Staten Island Ferry. We won't pay for your Metrocard, but we also won't demand to own your stuff! We will provide a goody bag to the first ten participants and encourage others to get snacks, materials and pee breaks sponsored. Mailing copies of your zines to the MTA & the DoT after is optional, but encouraged.

Lots of zines were purchased but none bought this week because I spoke and tabled at the Brooklyn Zine Fest.
