a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Shards of My Reality is my first ever perzine, and I thought I would kick it off with a Hello to the Zine Scene at large. :)
It includes some of my artwork, comics, some information about me and who I am, ect. ect. including a SUPRISE ENDING (I say suprise, because something exciting happened while I was still working on this zine that was a suprise to me, and I end off the zine by mentioning what "it" was :D)
Future issues of Shards of My Reality will be less scattered and more serious subject matter, but I thought Id just introduce myself first, so here you go.
24 pages, half sized.

This issue is something of a continuation from the previous one; I am still unhappy with my living situation and still trying my best to some to terms with it, while at the same time planning my escape. I write about the coming of spring, feeling unmotivated, personality types and having fun with my camera.
It is available to purchase through my Etsy shop. If you would be interested in trading, please do not hesitate to ask. My email address is sometimesimdreamingAThotmail.co.uk. Alternatively, feel free to send me a message on here.
oh yes. with a lovely cover drawn by the lovely jen cooney.(sorry the picture is sideways, i don't know how to flip it)
this issue is more sad/despairing than most of the zines i’ve done. i wrote about:
my time working at child protective services (trigger warning), trauma stewardship, “another zinester goes on a lengthy bike trip”, some ruminations on how self-publishing is just as valid as getting a MFA, even though the mainstream writing world says otherwise, two essays from an unreleased decade-in-review zine (one about being genderqueer & one about falling in love) and a sestina for team dresch!
this zine won’t be available through any distros, as it’s intensely personal, moreso than most of the zines i’ve done (i think) and i need, for my own safety and peace of mind, to control who gets their hands on it. i have NO problem with strangers reading it, so don’t be afraid to order it if you’re a stranger! i love strangers!
this zine is $2.50 (us/canada) or $3.50 (int’l) including postage. for the first time in my zine life, i have a paypal! it’s attached to an email address i don’t really use: many_headed_hydraAThotmailDOTcom. i can't really accept trades that aren't pre-arranged right now, sorry.
if you're old fashioned and hate paypal, that's cool! just mail $2 cash or US postage stamps to me at:
