a place for zinesters - writers and readers
This zine was certainly fun to make, considering how many countless hours I spend happily working on arts and crafts projects anyway. Art is a huge part of my life: It is a way for me to express the things I don't have the words for, an excuse to start up a conversation, a way to spend time doing something constructive, and a source of ideas that help me make sense of the world. I wanted to try and take some of the magic that I feel when I'm totally absorbed in some creative project and share it the best way I know how, which is through a zine.
Is a collection of writing, artwork and music inspired by the poem Wood by Andrew Murray, which appeared in issue 5.
Contributors include Alexander Bertram-Powell, Lawrence Bradby, Gethan Dick, Johanna van Fessem, Andrew Murray, Owl Project, Benjamin Platts-Mills, Robh Hokum, Steve Leighton, Mark Lewis, Ian Duncan Smith, Emma Tinker, and Wes White.

Conveniently the latter one is my own site and thus also the very same place you can get yourself a copy of the zine. Here's the shop if you don't want to have to click all through the website to get through to it.
