Hi. My name is Katie, and I make zines. I write one called aubade. It is the most important thing I do in my spare time. I also write a weird sort of angry philosophical zine called we are not machines! I just moved to Portland in August 2008 from my home state of Virginia. I love reading zines a lot, and I write about it sometimes on the web. Here, actually. I'm also a fan of letter writing, book reading, and scone making, among other things.

I just started a new project called What I Learned Today, which is a biweekly zine in which I write down one thing I learn each day and then put it together in a little zine. Contact me for monthly subscriptions ($1 per month) or more info.

If you are interested in getting a copy of aubade, or any of the other projects I do, or if you'd just like to say hi or be penpals, write me a letter! aubadezine AT gmail DOT com.

Hey Katie! I received your letter and the birds last week. Thank you!!!
Hmm so I am trying to get a hold of your zines. I have read 2,3,4 I think? Where can I find others? Parcel press only has 4 and Mae seems to have ran out of your zine.

Hi Katie, I really enjoyed reading Remembering Elliot. "Say Yes" was a significant song to me and one of my faves as well. I was thinking lots of people should make their own "Remembering Elliot" zines and each would be sub-titled a different song. I might do one. It would be a neat way to honor him and not forget him. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and thanks for doing your zine.

I never wrote you back...

I go to PCC- Cascade and after class on my way to the bus I stopped at the North Portland Library. They had two little magazine holder type things with a paper describing that it was a "Zine Exchange Program"... People leave a copy of a zine and then take one home to keep or return. You dont need a library card or anything. I thought that was a really cool idea. Have you seen this? I went to the Central Library in downtown and they didn't have the Zine Exchange box.

Yeah, I had no idea Portland could get into the 80's. That's crazy to me. This summer I will be moving out of this attic and getting a two bedroom place with a friend that is suppose to be moving up here. So I'm trying to see where cheap rent it. What's rent like near the Hollywood district? I know where that is, I think the 44 or the 75 bus line goes by there.

8 months? Are you glad you moved here?
I don't think I will ever regret moving here.

"where i go, little stories about my favorite places" is that at the library? The cover and name look familiar...
