Pieces #6: On Commuting
Perzine 1/4 size : 86 pages

Filled with photos and stories about my first month commuting to Chicago via the South Shore electric line, this zine picks up where Pieces #5 left off in terms of change, and touches on human isolation, connectivity, and transient strangers.

 

Available for $3 or even trade. Even trades don't have to be zines. They can also be handwritten or typewritten letters, tea, handmade cards or postcards, stationary, buttons & pins, or other random but interesting odds and ends.

Here. In My Head. #9, a feminist perzine from the UK, now for sale!
48 pages, 1/4 sized – £1.00



Inside, I write about technology, thealogy (goddess worship), common anti-feminist arguments, and being a graduate. There’s also some lists and similarly fluffy little things scattered throughout. Black and white, with a hand-coloured front cover.
Want to buy a copy from me? Just Paypal £1.00 to blatant_blitheAThotmail.co.uk, and I’ll send the zine out to you the next day, with no delivery charge. If you would like me to include one of my free minizines, Twt, just leave me a note when you send me the money and I’ll put it in for you. Don’t forget, you can read more about my zines on my zinewiki page - http://zinewiki.com/Catherine_Elms.

my new perzine, reimagining queer community, is finished!

reimagining queer community is a personal investigation into my evolving relationship to queerness, as well as some of the ways in which i navigate queer spaces around me. some of the topics in this zine include: alienation and estrangement from the queer community, what it means to feel connected, the myth of a cohesive queer community, being a spectator versus being a participant, (personal and shared) queer histories, and potential strategies to build new alliances.  

this was my first attempt at making a twenty four hour zine (it wound up taking three days due to work/life interruptions, but who’s counting?) it is 20 pages, 1/4 sized and text heavy. i am asking for $1 or a trade. if you are interested, please email uniunverse@gmail.com.

This is my first attempt at the 24 hour zine thing and I had a ball making it. It’s called “An Exploration” and is all about my journey from abusive sex to bad sex to blah sex to finally discovering myself fully through bdsm. There are some TRIGGER WARNINGS for this issue for sexual assault and graphic depictions of bondage and masochism.

 

Message me for trades!

New to this Site, but anyhow I just put out my first zine about a trip I took to SanFrancisco a few years ago hitching and drinking the whole way.  It also has a teaser chapter of a novel I am working on.  I call it "Alcohol May Intensify This Effect".  Let's trade!
Comment by Merc on April 30, 2011 at 4:00pm
I just finished two new perzines, one about my experiences having migraines, and a little mini-zine about friends and poetry.  You can see more on my Etsy shop, at http://www.etsy.com/shop/cocoanap
