Spread (Zine)

In 2019, Lazer Guided Reporter launched a new Dublin based zine, Spread. A collaborative project between Yvonne Kiely (LGR) and Mairead Mullan (visual artist), Spread is a lively new space for music, sex, and DIY culture in Ireland, published quarterly each year. With Spread we aim to create an interactive space for readers and to have critical conversations around these topics and we certainly welcome submissions. The topics of these conversations can be marginalised, popularised, or mainstream – it is how these topics are addressed and framed by the author that matters to us.

The theme for issue two is ‘Data’. Spread issue #2 coming soon.

Spread is published independently by Lazer Guided Reporter.
