Temporary shipping suspension as Shameless staff practice social distancing
Dear Shameless Readers, Subscribers, and Supporters,
Wow. The world has changed dramatically in the the past few days and weeks. Everyone here at Shameless HQ is okay right now - we’re washing our hands, practicing social distancing, and trying to look out for one another. It’s definitely an unsettling and worrying thing to live in the middle of a pandemic, but we believe that social distancing is a demonstration of love and support for all the humans that share this planet. We’re all in this together. We’ll get through it together too.
Shameless is totally volunteer-run. We have no office or physical headquarters - we find space in our homes for planning and editing and laying out and, of course, for the issues themselves. When you place an order, it’s fulfilled by one of us, hand-addressing the envelope and taking it to the post office. For now, we are temporarily suspending all shipping. It’s a critical time for limiting the spread of COVID-19 and for the safety of ourselves and others, it’s not worth the risk. We will continue to process orders and will post them as soon as it’s safe to do so.
During this time, you can still place any order and have it shipped when it is safe, OR, if you just can’t wait, you can purchase a digital edition of the new Futures Issue on the Issuu platform!
If you buy a new subscription, we will send you a code for the digital edition and we will ship your first print issue when it is safe to do so.
In the meantime, why not have a look at our blog or join the conversation on social media? We haven’t stopped writing or posting and we’ve got space for you to talk back.
Finally, thank you for keeping our small, independent, volunteer-run mag up and running. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again - you keep the lights on and the stories coming.
In love and solidarity,
Angela G., Circulation Manager
on behalf of Team Shameless
