a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I use zines as a platform of expression, writing and creating about topics that people don't often talk openly about. I want alternatives to the corporate versions of life, disability, sexuality, gender, resistance, hardship, surviving and fucking good everythings.
I am miscellaneously located- having lived in three different countries over the last year but my feet are set to steady themselves in Brighton, England where I plan to escape from the real world and back into studentship.
So far the assortment of zines I've written or helped compile are Get A Grip: Travels Through My Mental Health, I Am Not the Rain: Navigating Life As Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse, Pathologize This!: A Mental Health Zine (ed 1 & 2), Reproduce Freely: A Reproductive Autonomy Zine/Reproduire en Liberte: Un Zine sur l'Autonomie Reproductrice, and Out of Order: Queer and Trans Youth Resistance. I'm also in the midst of compiling a zine on graduating into unemployment, please submit a piece if you're interested!
I'm into anti-oppression zines, queer zines, evocative zines, quirky zines, or beautifully laboured pieces of love that make me look at things differently. I'm totally up for exchanges. I'd like to give copies of my zines away for free but sadly the printing and postage costs are catching up with me so if you'd like to order copies maybe we can work something out so that we both end up on the plus side of our bank accounts. Feel free to get in touch with me- for ordering, for feedback, for general thoughts and whatnot at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to my new webpage Sarah Tea-Rex Home Page or to order zines go to Sarah Tea- Rex Etsy Shop
Over a year ago I wrote a letter to Microcosm Publishing expressing my concerns with their continuing to involve an abuse perpetrator in their organisation. They never responded to me. This week, there are many more of us writing- united- to Microcosm. This time I hope we’re too loud to be ignored.
Here’s the …Continue
A few years back I gave my friend Jackie a copy of my first zine, I Am Not The Rain, which I put together with my friend Amber. It’s a zine about a lot of things, mostly about life after experiencing childhood sexual abuse. Jackie was quite excellently awesome and asked Amber and I if she could turn it into a video story. The video also turned out to be quite excellently awesome. I have wanted to get it…Continue
As a result of being rather hectic these past few weeks as well as the cumulative effects of vengeful technology’s refusal to cooperate with me, I have had a bit of a zine lull. But I am now back in the swing of things!
The Sarah Tea- Rex Etsy Shop is now stocked with copies of all of my zines- so they are ready to be ordered and sent to you all! I have managed to get a copy of …Continue
I have started a zine blog (http://sarahtearex.wordpress.com/) where I originally posted this but as a part of my protest, I wanted to spread the word to the We Make Zines community, so here it is...
In my last post I was excitedly nattering about all the zine happenings in my life. Among these was hearing from Microcosm that they wanted to distro a zine of mine. Somehow the background on the founder and collective member Joe…Continue
