"how to be a Lolita"?

So during my daily EGL stalk I come across this. This blog post will basically be my two cents based off what I've read (on the link previously mentioned).

July is International Zine Month

I haven't been on We Make Zines in forever. But this year I decided to participate in the International Zine Month events and for the first day I had to sign into my account and write about this month.

Microcosm, it’s time for change

Zines in Video!

A few years back I gave my friend Jackie a copy of my first zine, I Am Not The Rain, which I put together with my friend Amber. It’s a zine about a lot of things, mostly about life after experiencing childhood sexual abuse. Jackie was quite excellently awesome and asked Amber and I if she could turn it into a video story.

Boycott Microcosm, Support Survivors

I have started a zine blog (http://sarahtearex.wordpress.com/) where I originally posted this but as a part of my protest, I wanted to spread the word to the We Make Zines community, so here it is...

 

In my last post I was excitedly nattering about all the zine happenings in my life. Among these was hearing from Microcosm that they wanted to distro a zine of mine. Somehow the background on the founder and collective member Joe…

There is a Junk Drawer display at the “The Opportunity Shop” in Hyde

Park in Chicago.

The Junk Drawer set-up was created almost entirely out of stuff found at

the space: sets of drawer, and display racks that were previously used
