In the Year of the Earth Pig 2019,

FORTUNE was a Philadelphia-based publication project conceived by Andrienne Palchick, Heidi Ratanavanich, and Connie Yu; and assembled by and for queer Asian publics. Each of 13 monthly issues joined letterpress and risograph printing, featured multiple contributors, and was released through community gatherings of varied scale.

Looking Forward,

FORTUNE continues their commitment to archival inquiries, print-based skillshares, more public collaborations, and many meals with you. We think of printing and self-publishing as a practice of process-oriented learning, and as a means of gathering, remembering, history-making. As such, FORTUNE will always be a public project, tended to collectively.
