Review of Let's D.I.Y. #2 by Grrrl Zines A-Go-Go

I wrote the following review for Zine World #25:

Let’s D.I.Y. #2: This issue of Let’s D.I.Y. is subtitled “Off the Page: taking zine-making to the community” and was produced by Grrrl Zines A-Go-Go. It tells why zine-makers should get involved with community groups and gives info on how to begin and maintain such partnerships. Once the basics are covered, there’s some more in-depth information on how to do it all better. The zine closes with a list of resources as well as questions… Continue

Reviews of You Live for the Fight When That’s All That You’ve Got #1 by Ciara Xyerra

I wrote the first review for the Feminist Review Blog, and it can be found here


The second review was written for issue #25 of Zine World.

This zine is the latest from the woman who brought the world five issues of A Renegade’s Handbook to Love & Sabotage. After her dad’s unexpected death in 2002, she took a break from producing zines because “the words just didn’t come out in a… Continue

Q&A with Matt W. Moore {printed in Art Bureau 17}

Matt, you've been very busy. In the last year or so, you've moved from Portland, Maine to work for Burton Snowboards in Vermont, and now I hear you opened your own design firm in Boston. Can you give us a brief re-cap of what led you away from Portland and made it possible for you to start a design business in Boston?

Well, I finished school in Portland in 2005 and worked at…

I am really looking forward to the zinefest in London, see my events bit for info, as I am part of the exhibition thats part of the fest.

But I am also looking forward to being in an exhibit with fabulous women artists. Its just all so cool.

Anyway, I hope people will come and spend time at the… Continue

Zine Reviews

I am going to start posting zine reviews that I've written for the Feminist Review Blog (http://feministreview.blogspot.com/) and Zine World and GoodReads
(http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/142816). Once I post everything that I've already written, I will try to write new ones. These won't all be up-to-the- minute zine reviews, but maybe they will be of interest to someone.

Review of 3 by robnoxious

This review was first published in Zine World #26 and later on the Feminist Review Blog (http://feministreview.blogspot.com/2008/11/3.html).

3 is the fourth book published by robnoxious, a collection of creative non-fiction including pain and happiness, laughter, friendship and isolation, travel, cats and dogs, drinking, and even more than all that.

It’s difficult to accurately describe what this book is about. It’s the stories that make up one guy’s life. It’s about… Continue

Working on a new zine

i started working on a new zine today. This one is about my experiences as a queer woman, especially my experiences as a bisexual queer women who is in a long distance relationship with a man, causing a lot of people to perceive me as straight. I am probably going to a queer conference in Chicago in May and thought it would be fun to have a zine to give to people, kind of as a calling card.

It will be available for trade and purchase when it's done. I'll post here when it's ready,… Continue

hello, december.

lately life has been more about organizing the studio (again. it's a mess. not just any mess. it's epic.). beyond that, i've been tossing around a few new zine ideas in my head--all inclusive sorts of things that are like perzine meets tutorial meets art zine meets poetical meander. honestly, keeping up with a bunch of different zine topics is just too much darn work right now. i will, of course, continue to keep Fat Girl (my body posi zine)… Continue

those participating in the mini zine folks swap will receive the first copies, as i made it for the swap. and… Continue

its been so long

it took me about a month after completing motor city kitty #11 to finally go make copies of it. things have just been so busy. i don't know why i get so ambitious about zines when i know i'm not always gonna have the time to devote to them (probably because zines are true love.)

i know i owe some people trades, or zines for subscribers. here's the list of people i know i owe zines to. if you're not on it but believe you should be, let me know. sometimes i lose track of envelopes and… Continue

Just completed my first zine 'transmission'. It doesn't really have a theme as the zine in itself is an experiment. I threw in some of my collage and a cartoon in between a poem and a story.

Christmas actually encouraged me to complete it. My friend has no idea what zines are. I tried to explain and directed her to this site, but I think she needs to see an actual zine. So I went in search of some in Hamilton.

Only found one about sexual abuse and violent relationships, Hamilton… Continue
