about me


summer 1998
agnes briggs: fairy tale stories (coming soon!)

hello! my name is Ashley, i live in hicksville, usa [otherwise known as central FL], i'm 30 years old. i write, confiscate, collect, and daydream.



i have a few different projects going on right now!

1-my main zine, which i focus most of the time on, is my fairy tale zine, agnes briggs.  right now i am working on issue #2.  it's a loooong time coming; i had 2 fairy tale stories that were going to be in the same zine because they complimented each other so well, but the first story ended up being so long i decided it was good enough to stand on its own.  anyway, i had been writing this story for nearly a year, and i finally finished it recently.  now that the content is finished i'm in the process of collaborating with a friend who's a talented artist for the illustrations within the zine.  it should be ready soon, i hope!  featured stuff: shrinking girls, rivers that look like rainbows, and immortality.  oooh.

2-i also just finished a new zine called summer 1998.  it's my first attempt at a non-fiction perzine.  it's small and i finished it over a weekend, but i'm proud of how it came out.  it mostly has to do with my strict upbringing as a Jehovah's Witness - and there's a little teenage romance thrown in there, too!




if you are interested in trading zines, LET ME KNOW! i'm interested in all kinds of zines, but especially anything like imaginative short stories, art, fairy tales and zines to do with life-altering personal experiences.

i love old literature, stationary [or anything paper really], yarn, black and white movies, snail mail, vaginal music, lowercase letters, and much much more.

message me if you want to talk zines, are a good drawer and would like to help illustrate my fairy tale zine, or if you just want to talk. i'm a nice person.

Aww, thank you so much! I’m really glad that you enjoyed them :)
I’m still totally interested in collaborating, so please feel free to contact me when you’re up to working on a new fairytale zine.
Yes, we should absolutely trade again! I’m working on two zines at the moment which should hopefully be finished sometime soon.
