a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I'm Em, 26 and based in Sheffield, UK. I put out my first zine, a collective look at positive influences within queer feminist culture, 'The World's A Mess and Yr My Only Cure' in 2008 with a further issue coming out in 2010. I used to run Lola and the Cartwheels, a riot grrrl chapter and distro a few years ago and put on monhtly shows and clubnights in Sheffield and Leeds. You can read up on Lola here on the archive site - http://www.lolaandthecartwheels.webs.com
In 2009, i booked and read on the European/UK 'Sister Spit: The Next Generation' tour and contributed to a couple of other zines and small projects alongside running my blog - http://girlgotbusy.wordpress.com/ I mostly write about positive outlook, my own personal experiences and feelings, mental health, class and DIY empowerment.
In 2011, i set up my own business which took up most of my time, but now things are a lot more settled with the daily running, i have got back into self publishing again. I'm currently working on 'Poor Lass' a collective zine on positive experiences of growing up working class - https://www.facebook.com/PoorLassZine
