Since LondonFuse’s beginnings back in 2009, Fuse staff, contributors and board members have talked about creating a zine or paper for people to read on the go. The purpose: to create local content not covered by mainstream media.
That dream zine became and remained a wish-list item. The focus shifted back to the website and it’s many iterations as our community platform until now.
Don’t Get Angry, Get Short Fuse…
In late 2016 we shut our semi-functioning site down. There were many holes to fill. Meanwhile we wanted to offer something relevant and fun to “locals only”. It would include event listings, funny content, local artist profiles and small business support.
Our contributors were excited to have a tangible paper to write for. They created comics, articles or crossword puzzles and once we showed them our first draft, they helped us create the Short Fuse you can see and read today!
Thank you to our contributors, staff, carriers, distributors, advertisers, Shiloh, Nicki, Harina, Paulette and a HUGE thank you to Gerard Creces.
Next up for Short Fuse is a nifty little project we are planning to launch in summer 2017. Short Fuse will become a platform for communities that haven’t typically been represented by LondonFuse.
Look forward to more diverse content, puzzles, heritage pieces, comics (thank you Sammy!), and more voices helping us shape our city’s cultural landscape.
