We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I know we're all going to do it, so I guess we could keep it neat and tidy by putting it all in one thread. So here goes, JUST post about your new issue in this thread, don't discuss or reply, that way new members can easily see what output we're all responsible for!

love letters to monsters #2 is finished! just in time for spring! this is the description i wrote up for my zine distro:

the newest issue of my personal zine is a clear descendant of my former zine "a renegade's handbook to love & sabotage" (five issues were published beteen 2000 & 2002). the zine is comprised of ten pieces ranging from three to seven pages each, pretty heavy on the text, but illustrated throughout with cute comic drawings or people, scenes, & things (& a smidgen of very weird victorian clip art too--cats playing the piano?!). in addition to a letter to a sea monster & a letter from a sea monster, & a page of book recommendations, there is writing on the role of creativity in my life since i dropped out of most political collectives i was in, the events (personal, physical, & clinical) leading up to my abortion last summer (this is split into three parts, each documenting a specific piece of the abortion experience, from finding out i was pregnant to understanding the role of anti-choice activists), my experiences with the boston skillshare collective over the course of six years, a gentle critique of youth liberation, my thoughts on consent & social justice around issues of healthy sexuality, unpacking the concept of "radical relationships" to re-frame the idea on all kinds of health relationships & not just polyamory, struggling to challenge myself creatively & politically, & my frustrations with radical partisanship. this sounds kind of heavy, huh? but hopefully i was effective at writing everything through the prism of my own personal experiences, & the zine is a series of thought-provoking stories as opposed to strident ideological dogma. it definitely puts forth a fairly clear anarcha-feminist politic predicated on my decade-plus doing political collective organizing, but i hope it's also funny, vulnerable, charming...you know, all the good stuff that makes perzines personal. all typewritten with a cut & paste layout.

the zine is quarter-legal-sized, 48 pages, with cream-colored cardstock covers hand-colored (front & back).

other zines i have available:
you live for the fight when that's all that you've got #1 (perzine from february 2006 about death, suicidal ideation, traveling, minneapolis, france, & more) -- $2
up the logic punks! #1 (logic puzzles about punks, anarchists, & zinesters) -- $1.50
up the logic punks! #2 (more logic puzzles about punks, anarchists, & zinesters -- $2

the zine costs $2 anywhere in the world (that includes postage). i accept cash at:
ciara xyerra
12 lincoln ave. #3
somerville MA 02145 USA

or you can pay via paypal: learningtoleaveapapertrail@hotmail.com

or you can include with a larger distro order from learning to leave a paper trail zine distro (over 100 different zines to choose from, & an especially great resource if the above zine description appealed to you, because i write pretty much exactly the kind of zines i like to carry--personal/political, feminist & thought-provoking, a mix of good writing & smart-looking layout)
