"Falling Apart: A zine on death, grief, mourning and loss."
This zine is about grieving and mourning the death of someone while using letters, stories, poetry, artwork, photography as a way to help cope with grief.
There is a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to the death of a loved one....a lot of "time heals all wounds," "life goes on" and "what's done is done." Am hoping this zine will try to help people understand grief and not shaming those who are mourning into silence, denial, isolation and to "just get over it."
The grief zine is 38 pages and it's typed.
Currently have 10 copies on hand. If you would like to trade, contact me through the facebook page, send a message through wemakezines or email Sandra_reiki_@hotmail.com

**Thank you to the contributors**

Hi, all- the first press of Issue #001 of our zine "If you'd like o hear it // I can sing it for you" is done! Our zine is focused on the negotiation of an aging body and a “forgetful” self in an unaccommodating world, as well as accounts of chronic illness and the end-of-life experiences of an aging self.

You can check out our Tumblr and Facebook. Our zines are available on our webstore, where they are selling for $1.00 + postage. Thank you for your support, and I am looking forward to sharing our work with you all. Cheers!

If you’d like to hear it // I can sing it for you is an independent zine seeking submissions for Issue #001! This zine is focused on memory loss, and the negotiation of an aging and pathological body/brain and a “forgetful” self in an unaccommodating world, as well as accounts of chronic illness and the end-of-life experiences of an aging self.

We are seeking writings (300-500 words), photos, and artwork from folks in all of life’s ages and stages. This work is centered on intellectual/emotional criticisms and personal experiences of aging, illness, and death from caregivers, patients, and advocates. We are exploring the radical sociologies of aging, caregiving, and aging advocacy through personal experiences, progressive politics, and academic thought.

Please email agingzine@gmail.com with questions!
