Hey, I've had a break from my perzine 'Cats Teeth' but just completed #4. If you'd like to trade then leave me a comment or email me: wintermuse@gmail.com.

It's about living on my own, empowerment and independence, taking on a lover, my first attempts at a three-way relationship, desire and addiction, darkness, succubi, night-time realm. (Pictures on my profile)

Hey perzine cuties, I am writing my thesis about perzines and I was wondering if anyone wanted to participate in my research by answering some questions (all about zines)? I'm doing it via e-mail or snail mail, and zine trades are also involved if folks are interested.

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:

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. :)

I AM very purrrr sonal. Contact me!

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.

Minis so far:
