Crowd funder to release four publications in 2021.

New stretch target

Extra funding would allow for more book and zine releases each year, along with additional merchandise items. It would it also provide added security by helping to fund the various tools and software required for print. This is particularly helpful because the use of these tools is passed on to the collaborative artists who need them.  


I want to use this crowd funder to help replace some of the money and growth Subs would have achieved in 2020 without COVID. I've really missed out on the chance to do the various markets and release events I wanted to and to meet people in person at those events. 

With the money from this crowd funder I can achieve a few different things in 2021:

- I can print the four releases I already have scheduled to a higher and more actualised standard. Included in next years line up will be my own collected poetry spanning the last six years and a vacuum sealed scented zine by Maria Ferrie!

- I can do larger print runs and distribute more copies of the four publications.

- I can pay the local artists who will be involved more. 

Additionally, with some luck I can get back to doing events and book markets and meet some of you all in person to talk about books, zines, photography, poetry, travel writing and art. 

If you're new to Subs, take a look at our website which features the last six releases.
