Profile Information

i'm a late twenties lady who lives in philly and has been doing zines for a long(ish) time.

Hi. Yes, I'd love to trade. I never met you in person though I did get your zine from Philly Zine Fest 2009. Loved it. Glad you're still making more! I am not in Madison, where my zines here, so I'll sent them to you in a few weeks if that's ok. Yeah. My paper is finished, but it was fun writing it actually. We can go into it via email correspondence...
