I finished my first 30 page perzine 'Arkadelphia Road'
It starts at thanksgiving of 2009 when I came back home for awhile and stayed with my Mom who has brain cancer.

The perzine then goes through my experience with her & radiation and chemotherapy process. And ends with a countdown to Valentine's Day 2010.

I'm a positive person so the zine isn't a downer (though it has some dips) the main point of the zine is staying positive and having a good outlook.

If you're interested please email arkadelphiaroad@gmail.com
There's no price on it, I'm sure we can negotiated/trade.

Sleeps With Ghosts #1 is out!

This issue talks about an abusive relationship and getting out of it, first sexual encounters, sexual and emotional abuse, the basics of BDSM and how it
differs from abuse, queer identity, and silence, among other things. There is a trigger warning! It's 42 pages, half sized, $3 or trade.

Available at my etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/sleepswthghosts
Contact me for trades!

Hi all,
I recently finished issue #1 of my perzine, Not Lonely. It's 40 A6 (quarter size) pages and has a a mental health emphasis - ramblings about the medications I have taken and why I've decided not to take them any longer, what it feels like to have lived in 5 different places by the age of 25, how I always procrastinate instead of getting work done, how I never seem to say the right thing and a few other wee rants and thoughts.

More info on my page if you're interested in getting hold of a copy (& I hope you will be).

Hey everybody! You can pick up a copy of my perzine at www.doyouseewhatyouget.com and there is a review of it here http://hungryforest.blogspot.com/2009/12/unedited-mind.html that describes the content pretty well.

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.
