New issue of my zine Telegram Ma'am, 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!)

AVAILABLE HERE! schoolformaps.etsy.com.

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

19 Water Street
Lindsay, Ontario
K9V 2C9 Canada

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

Beautiful Mess #2 is out! This issue features moving away from Calgary and trying to find myself in Montreal, dealing with an identity crisis and venting my frustrations from working in the beauty industry. I talk about learning to love myself after being self destructive for most of my life and looking back on past work, as well as a large piece about my adventure to Burning Man. There is an obituary for my favourite snail, a description of how snakes eat, and a sexy centerfold, plus more!

half size, 40 pages
$3 plus shipping or trade

A perzine about becoming more yourself as you grow up. It's got words, pictures, a staple and some designery. Quarter-size long like a takeaway menu, black & white. AUD$3.50 to anywhere in the world or we can trade. :)

All Things Ordinary #1 is out now! This is a personal zine about the last month i spent in Buffalo, NY (where i have lived all 27 years of my life) before i moved to Portland, OR (where i've been living for the past 4 months). It mostly consists of reflections on my time in Buffalo, thoughts about what lies ahead of me in Portland (i had never visited Portland before i moved here), and things that happened to me during my last month living in Buffalo. It is 24 pages and quarter sized.

I love trading zines and would prefer that, but if you don't want to/can't trade it is $3.00ppd. My paypal address is derekneuland@gmail.com.

send zine trades or $3.00 well hidden cash/money order to:
