Check out my etsy for a copy!

Have you ever hosted a traveller before? Volthair #4 is the stranger in the night that you house in your guest room. Coffee and tequila; a mix of stories about couch surfing adventures to a list of embarrassing moments. I wear my heart in my zine, because I believe human connection is art. 

My zines began as an art project; a goal to write about my life and send it to strangers around the world. Over time I realized how writing and reflection enabled me to grow. I've dealt with social anxiety for much of my life and my zines were the first things that allowed me to feel and be heard. My perzines have connected me with so many wonderful people around the world and gave me enough confidence to share with people I know in real life. 

Each zine I publish allows me to observe how my personality shifts and changes. After every story I write, there is a decay period of reflection during the time I prepare for the world to view my zines. By the time you read my zine, I will surely be a different person. I may already regret a few things about what I have written before I even print the zine.

Low and below; Lo and behold; Volthair #4 is the first zine that feels most reflective and accurate of my printed cmyk mind. Kathy 4.0: Polished. This zine contains writings from March 2010 - February 2013. 64 pages. Black and White. Signed and dated on the back. 30 versions available.

I have some copies of Vapour Trails #1. It’s $2 if you’re in Montreal, $3 if you’re not. Definitely down for trades. You can message me here or e-mail vapour.trails.zine@gmail.com and we can figure out the stuff. 
Here’s the intro:

“Issue #1 of Vapour Trails was written between the years 2009 & 2011, during the dying & death of an eight year long romantic relationship. Considering the backdrop for a lot of this writing, themes that crop up tend to revolve around loneliness, loss, nostalgia, awakening, and various introspections."

Includes some poetry and poetic-type rants, lots of drawings, lots of emotions.

Hi guys! If you have time, please visit our page for the Candies and Whims Translation/Publication Project.. Its a Philippine based project of translating anarchist/feminist/gender/queer/mental health/radical texts from English language into Filipino language with the aim of publicizing it and giving the local community access over these kind of readings. Please help us and if you have any other ideas about what you'll think about the project please let me know. Hit me up at honeyjoy.andres@gmail.com

Nostrovia! Poetry is an independent press started by Jeremiah Walton his Junior year of high school in 2011.  The mission hurdling this press forwards is to bring poetry to the youth, Jeremiah's generation, who negatively stereotype poetry.  

Too Obscene is Nostrovia! Poetry's next publishing adventure.  Too Obsceneis a zine seeking poetry and flash fiction deemed "too obscene" by other presses and publishers.  This does not mean the more times you say "fuck" in your poem, the more likely it is we'll publish you.  No, poetry and flash fiction with literary merit is being sought.  This zine was inspired by the trials centering around Allen Ginsberg's poem Howl.  

You can read the submission guidelines at Nostrovia! Poetry.  Submission entry is free.  Come check it out!  Cheers!
