a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I discovered zines when I was 15, through a girl that I was friends with at the time. Her therapist recommended she give zining a try. When I tentatively made my first zine she freaked out at me, accused me of stealing her idea, and went about trying to destroy my reputation at the school. Fortunately I was undaunted and continue to zine to this day.

I discovered zines from the young-adult novel Hard Love. The whole novel itself is well-done but the zine thing is what's stuck with me. Lately, I've decided I need to put myself out there and a zine seemed like the way to go.
