Ben Spies replied to Becky the Evil Flower's discussion Zine written as a character? in the group Literary Zines
"I think it's a really cool idea.  I've sort of done the opposite-- most of the stories in my zines are purely fictitious, but I wrote and published one in first person that did not specify the names of the characters, and I kind of…"

Literary Zines

For publishers of short fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, comics, and anything generally writerly.

Profile Information

My zine is called No More Coffee. It's original short fiction. If you tend to wonder what is going on in the life of the guy behind the counter at the all-night donut shop, or the waitress sleeping in her hatchback between shifts at the truck stop, this is the zine for you.

I'm based semi-permanently out of Chicago but currently living in Galveston, TX. I tend to be all over the damn place, so send me an email at nomorecoffeezine@gmail.com to get a hold of me.

I love trades and also meet-ups and other events, so get in touch! NMC #3 available for trade/$2 ppd as of late October 2010. NMC #1 and #2 also available as soon as I print more of them. All are half-size and between 24 and 32 pages.
