mycelial de/composition moves through a series of collaborative research and writing workshops inspired by fungal digestion. Each workshop partners with a different organization or small press, activates a different library or archive, and yields a collective zine, a collage of corresponsive perspectives created by the chance ecosystem of participants who gather. Together these zines compose Hyphae, a cross-press journal.

The prompt:


Humans and fungi are more similar than one might think, and one commonality we share is enzymatic digestion. But while humans digest internally, fungi secrete enzymes into their environment, breaking things down and making nutrients available for themselves and myriad beings simultaneously. As Anna Tsing puts it, “fungal eating is often generous: It makes worlds for others.” How might we look to mycelium as a model for learning and making as a chance community?
