Regeneration 32 pages, half size $2 US, $3 outside US, trades accepted Ashlee Swanson 8150 W 30 ½ St. #306 St. Louis Park, MN 55426 email@example.com
For those of us who trembled at the thought that there was no replacement generation of zine-creators, think again. Ashlee Swanson's excellent zine on the confusing, twentysomething experience is a fine representation of the next generation of zinesters.
Here's a nice interview with me. It's also about the MCA zine fair which is coming up next weekend. Last year it was so busy that I momentarily lost a shoe when trying to push through the crowds. This year I will dress more sturdily.

I saw him speak at the London… Continue
I finished issue #8 of RatBrat yesterday! Well, the editing and cut & paste portion. I'm going to be copying it tomorrow. This issue is more fun than issue #7 and talks mostly about body image, including my feelings about my own body, a list of creative ways to combat negative body image, and a piece on bindis as a form of body decoration. I also talk about labels, belonging, and my own interpretations of the words "bisexual" and "bicurious." Threw in a few poems I wrote a couple months ago… Continue

We at the Ms Valerie Park Distro are headed to Boulder, Co in the morning to attend this weekend's Utne Reader awards ceremony because our very own Ariel Birks got nominated for Zine of the Year for Jesus Christ Superzine! Kinda weird, we're totally going to be the only zinesters at the thing, but how often do you get invited such a thing? For us, not very often. We'll keep y'all posted on the… Continue

i can barely keep track of the trades i'm currently involved in. i have zines waiting in my mailbox at least once a week. i have comments from people who like what i've written and want to read more. i've run out of issues and had to get more copied.
