a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Hey there. My name's Tasha. I'm a mum to 2 dudes, and acting mother hen to a little flock of chickens. We live with my best friend & husband (same person) in a house that I adore, despite the fact that it's falling down around us. He & I are in a 3 piece instrumental prog rock band, Upside Ictus. He writes comics, I make zines. I've been known to get carried away with life, and glue.
I'm occasionally a workshop facilitator for #AZineThing, during which I get to cut and paste things with primary school children & discuss diy self publishing, underground media & the importance of identity with teens. I've been involved in one community zine project, and have plans for another. Life is busy and *awesome.
*most of the time.
I've been told I write like I talk. I'm not sure if this is a disclaimer, apology or an excuse. I write what I know, or struggle to understand. Most of my writing is personal, rarely edited and most importantly, for myself.
The pricing of my zines reflects their production costs and all money from sales go back into more making, printing and postage costs. If you're a local stamp away I would rather trade than sell. I enjoy reading zines as much as making them, so if you'd like to trade, just ask.
Zines currently available via me (here):
