Hello! I have two issues of my perzine, Pieces, ready and available for trade. Issue #1 is about reading, writing and growing up, all things I thought about for the first couple weeks after quitting my job to be a full-time writer. Issue #2 is about girls and how just wondering if they would ever like me got me nowhere.

Both issues are 1/4 size and 24 pages. As I said, they're both up for trade or $1-2 each depending where you live.

I have finished the new issue of Not Lonely!

A6 (1/4 size), 28 pages.

Issue 2 is mostly about saying no to things most people say yes to. There are articles on the drinking scene and why I don't go to pubs/clubs and the personal and political reasons why my partner and I decided not to get married; as well a discussion of the ways I manage my mental health without medication and a nerdy article on my method of "getting into" new albums.

Please see my profile for details of how to get a copy.

NEW DISTRO: currently accepting zines for consideration!

we're into a bit of everything right now: activism, art/design/illustration, comics, the dark & the bizarre, eco-friendly guides, feminism & gender issues, kid-friendly zines (yeah, why not?), how-to guides, literary/fiction, mental health, vegan, and perzines about these topics too. but you can check the full topics list here.

Or check my blog post for all the info!
thanks :)

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.

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).
