Telegram Ma'am issue twenty-two now available!

Issue twenty-two of my perzine, Telegram Ma'am, documents some of the happier times of 2010, which I consider my best year so far - though I intend to make 2011 even better. I traveled quite a bit throughout the year, moved back to the city I'm in love with, and did a lot of hard work on my mental health and self-esteem, so that's what this issue is about. I've written about:



- being zinester-in-residence at the Anchor Archive in Halifax, Nova Scotia

- attending the 10th Annual…

POEMS
1.
Light is a merry prankster
and seldom the real article.
When it dresses up it's a wave.
When it doesn't it's a particle.
2.
Gossip says that she
so feared not being thin
that she would never weigh herself
with her contacts in!

3.
I went down

Think it Over: A Introduction to the International Workers of the World

Just got a stack of these from the Portland IWW and they are really awesome, especially for those who have seen the any of the 1920's/30's pamphlets that the IWW put out; Eberhardt Press nailed the look! Beautiful, informative, and true to their history.…

my first ever zine review from dan murphy at syndicated zine reviews

"I don't have piercings or tattoos, nor do I plan on getting any in the near or distant future, still I found this zine quite interesting and informative. Stacy really knows her stuff and has produced a thorough and incredibly useful zine about caring for tattoos and piercings so that you don't end up regretting your decision or cursing your luck when things go wrong. She starts by explaining the healing process and then goes into detail about various products and nutrients that are useful…

I'm new here...

My lovely partner, and source of all of my inspiration, Persephone Pomegranate rubbed off on me, and I have officially thrown my hat into the zine making arena! She guided me here and I am ready to dive right in! I'm a writer/podcaster whose love of words knows no bounds, and now I can proudly and officially proclaim that I too, make zines!

For years I have sat on the proverbial zine sidelines, watching Persephone make and receive amazing volume after volume of creatively imagined and…

Zine Libraries (sharing information and ideas)

I love libraries (or any kind of collection, really) so naturally, i love zine libraries.

For me, zines are about sharing information and ideas within a community (if not a global community), and there is no better community for sharing information and ideas than a library. And better yet, I think the thing i I love most about libraries is that it goes with the principal that people are naturally good, and will return the books, so they're free for anyone to use.
