a place for zinesters - writers and readers
a new issue of deafula is out, issue #5:
have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a hearing parent and receive the news that your child has irreversible hearing loss?
now imagine this news in the time before the ADA existed, before there was a such thing as an IEP, before institutional or medical guidance really existed. imagine the only advice the doctor gave you was “well, just try to teach her how to speak.”
this is an interview on what it’s like to be a hearing parent raising a deaf child. this is an interview with my mother.

“Issue #1 of Vapour Trails was written between the years 2009 & 2011, during the dying & death of an eight year long romantic relationship.

PILTDOWNLAD # 7 IS OUT NOW:
Piltdownlad is a personal narrative zine. Each issue centers on a true story.
Issue 7 is "The Murky Realm," a biographical sketch of a tragic union with some creative engineering...
My parents never should have gotten married. But even though my father was gay and my mother was chemically imbalanced, this was the 60s, when single men in their forties did not identify as queer and people with personality disorders were rarely diagnosed, much less treated. And marriage was inexorable. The tragedy, of course, is that five children came out of this unhappy coupling. But that's not the point of this story. That comes later. "The Murky Realm" is about how these two people got together, fell apart, came back together, then fell apart again only to get back together again...
The story is pieced together from what we were told growing up, what I remember from my father's various tales and walking a mile in both their shoes as an adult.
The text is typewritten on my Olympia Manual.
The size is 5.5 x 7 and the cover is cardstock with a handwritten title piece glued on.
The first printing is limited to 50 numbered copies.
The page count is 44.
Available for trade or $3 via etsy.
But I prefer trades.
