a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I'm Jen - a 30-something year old fat queer zinester from Los Angeles. I used to run MAD People Distro for seven years and have been writing She's Not a Morning Person zine since 1998.
About the zine: She's Not a Morning Person zine started back in 1998 as kind of a random personal zine. It has since evolved into a personal political zine that has covered topics from race, sex, culture, love, addiction, and more. The current issue is #12, with issues #6-#11 still available. All previous issues are out of print with no current plans to reprint.

Description: From the intro: "This is a love letter to all of my fellow cat ladies and cat men out there." The zine is about my two cats and other cats that have graced my life. It's about how my cat-love evolved and how it was destiny. It's lighthearted and purrific and I hope you like it.
