CUBlog open to resuming CUZine


Good afternoon, curators of filmic deep thoughts! I’m feeling the itch to publish a new C-U Confidential digest this year. Would you be up for some fresh ink? If so, it will come to you at a price, so to speak. I’m pretty convinced that I should take CUZine to a print-on-demand service, given how much of a struggle we had to reach the extended fundraising goal for issue 10 so I could afford the traditional print run. Going a new route ends the placement of CUZine for free in local establishments and at events, thereby compromising my philosophy of making it as widely available as possible to Champaign-Urbana, yet it may also be liberating in some aspects. I’ll strive to price future issues within reason so I can cover manufacturing costs and stipends for certain bells and whistles, setting aside the remainder to invest in a return to mass quantity down the line. An upside is the issues can be longer. I want to engage with guest writers to fill CUZine #11 with cool and relevant material since it is the de facto 10th anniversary issue, never mind the fact we reached said anniversary on the calendar in 2017. Hit me at cuconfidential [at] gmail [dot] com if you are interested in receiving prompts for submissions. Until I get my bearings on this front, enjoy a bonus celebratory badge featuring the lovely Drea Aarons in her guise from the cover of issue 10. Enlarge it with a click to copy, paste, and share. Stay safe and Confidential, agents!
