“What should I write for this week’s intro? Nothing feels appropriate right now.”

“‘Fuck.’ Just write ‘fuck.'”

And with that, let’s jump into our weekly recap.

Weekly Recap

We began this week on a very poetic note with Mahik’s “A Truth From My Weeping Eyes” on Sunday and Melodie Muggy’s “Evergreen” on Monday.

Then, we directed our Artist Spotlight toward Teri Anderson’s latest piece, “Bring Down Barriers.”

On Tuesday, we tuned-in to an interview with UK-based alternative artist Floss to learn more about her latest single, “Kings & Queens.”

Afterward, we tuned-in to a review of Houston-based pop-group Haunter’s latest single, “Miss Me.”

On Thursday, we released “The Burgundy Zine #15: Go Green,” a.k.a “166-pages of lovin’ on good ol’ mother Earth.” We are immensely proud of our community and send our love to the 70+ contributors who made this issue possible. <3

On Saturday, Liliana E. Guzmán had our hearts aflutter with her poem, “Lettie.”

Last – but most certainly far from least – Austin Stoltzfus shared mind-altering information about parasites.

Going Forward

Without a second to spare, we will be going forward with the start of our next zine’s theme “Skin Care, Self Care.”

This next issue is dedicated to you; how have you been practicing self-care over the last few months? We want to know!

More information about submitting content to this issue will be released on our blog this week.

In the meantime, we encourage you to flip through the latest issue of our digital magazine. The time, effort, and love dedicated by our community towards “The Burgundy Zine #15: Go Green” amidst the uncertainty we’ve been faced with over the last two months is truly heartwarming.

Thank you. Thank you for your support, thank you for your enthusiasm, and on a personal note, thank you for being a positive outlet for me.

Until next week,
