I have two new issues of my zine, Telegram Ma'am out now.

Issue 19 is the winter survival issue. I made it for those of us who have depression year-round and find Winter especially difficult. This issue of Telegram Ma'am is quarter-sized, 16 pages, and has twenty-seven tips and projects to help you survive the winter. Some winter survival tips include things like knitting your own scarf, getting off the internet, taking evening walks, keeping in touch with your friends via snail mail, setting daily or weekly goals, etc...

I also made a split with Tukru's zine, Your Pretty Face Is Going Straight to Hell!

Telegram Ma'am #18 is a love letter to my bike, a beautiful vintage cruiser. There are notes on anxiety and depression as well, being a weird girl in a small town, going to zine gatherings, and adventures with my local friends. I write about learning how to ride my bike again after the snow melted, late-night bike rides, hanging out at the library, and challenging myself to communicate more assertively.

Your Pretty Face Is Going Straight to Hell #9 is about long-distance friendship and meeting people over the internet in real life, loneliness, and a desire to make more friends or have better relationships with her current friends. Tukru writes about spending time with her family, turning twenty-seven and feeling like an emotional mess on birthdays, playing with her new Blythe doll, and mental health.

Quarter-sized, 72 pages (each half is 36 pages; flip one zine over and read the other!)

My zines are available here: schoolformaps.etsy.com.

Or you can snail mail well-concealed Canadian or U.S. cash to:

Maranda Elizabeth
19 Water Street
Lindsay, Ontario
K9V 2C9 Canada

*SELECTED TRADES ONLY* (For the split zine) Because this zine is super thick, because it costs more to print and costs more to send, etc.

I am making a mini-zine (8 fold vert cuts) once a week starting with the Portland Zine Symposium 2009 going to 2010. IF you would like any of my zines or all of them I will send them to you free of charge within the USA, or for trade to anywhere else on planet earth.

I don't know if I'll ever make a mental health zine. Despite the fact that I've had a mental illness for 16 years, I think making a zine limited just to my problems would have a very negative and depressing effect on me. Nevertheless, I support people that make mental health zines because it's an area that really needs more publicity in the zine community; plus I can see how it would be a wonderful release for certain people. So I really appreciate the fact that there's a mental health zine group.

I've just finished my first perzine ever ALPOLG. It was made as an effort to cope with emotions i do not usually deal with.
message me if you are interested. and a trivia: all "profits"from all my zines will officially be saved to get me a flight ticket back home--yeah i know that sounds so much like eBegging. hah!
have a great day everyone :)

Functionally ill #5 is out! It's about being rediagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, applying for Medi-Cal, dealing with bureaucracy, what my anxiety feels like, and losing services. There's a lot packed into this small issue. So get in touch if you're interested in trading! The only catch is that I'm going on a big trip for the first 20 days of July. Feel free to message me here about setting up a trade, but it will take me a long time to get back to you! Good wishes to all, Laura-Marie
