due to the fact that sari will be graduating next semester, we are gearing up to the unfortunate fact that we will have to charge more money to print (we get fairly priced printing for the time being). this issue is absolutely huge and extremely text heavy! we’re not asking for $4 because we want to make spending money off of this project – 100% of the finances we procure go to printing and mailing. the time spent on this zine is pretty outrageous and arguably requires more of an effort than one would put into an undergrad class! hoax is done in our spare time, explaining why there has been a 5 month gap between this issue and the release date of #3.
for mailing, please be aware that it is the end of the semester for us and a crunch time with finals, holidays, and such. we will be sending zines on a first-come-first-serve basis: depending on when you request a copy, we will put your name & address down to mail to. we apologize ahead of time if you do not receive your copy within the next few weeks!
to reserve yer copy, please send your name and mailing address to hoaxzine(at)gmail(dot)com!
