Me & My 'Zines

Hey there. My name's Tasha. I'm a mum of 2 boys & 4 chickens. We live with my best friend/husband in a house that I adore, despite the fact that it's falling down around us. My husband & 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):

* ISSUE #14 "How do you take it?" Perzine; 2014, the earlier thoughts, notable moments, ideas, thus far, the new year. 1/4 sized 16 pg, $1 AU or trade

* ISSUE #13 "How do you take it?" Perzine; Winter, moments of discovery consumed by thought. bnw cut n paste 1/4 sized 32pg, $2 AU or trade

Contact me here on wmz, or you can leave me bread crumbs through www.lifeasawhitepickettfence.wordpress.com

or a_perfect_turtle@hotmail.com

or you can always send snail mail requests, trades, critical letters etc to me here:

Tasha, PO Box 15, Mt Eliza, Vic   3930, Australia

My profile was looking overrun and shabby, so I tried to tidy it up a bit. Less is more, you know? 

Unless I'm on a rant in a zine, then it's a whole other story.. 

Here are some of the zines I have made, since forever, I know I've missed titles, but this is the majority of it.

So, other previously written zines published by me, Tasha, include..............

and I love that about them.

It is the abscense of guidlines and boundaries of this format that make zines, making/reading/enjoying them such a pleasure to me. I need an outlet that I can express myself in around the stupid hours i keep, i'm a pro cut and paster (or so i tell my kids!) and love love love the 'not-knowing' how my end of project product will turn out.

I have been gifted some interesting books that specifically…

OMG Tasha, it has been entirely too long. Are you still at the same address? I have zines to catch you up on! What is the last issue of mine that you have? Hope all is well/

At 10:09pm on March 23, 2012, Dawn Wood said…

I'm really interested in both the Y YOUNG and Age and Circumstances Issues (okay, all of them sound great but that would be some crazy postage, LOL), so whichever one is easiest for you to send. Shoot me an email feministzinester@gmail so we can swap addresses! I have two I can send you, one was done by the group I make the Zine for before I came onboard and this new one is my first since taking over as the "maker".
