a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Hi hi, I made a comic/graphic novella/zine last year about depression. It took a really long time to work on due to fatigue etc. But I eventaully managed to get it out. I'm now trying to motivate myself to do something else! It got a really kind review on Broken Frontier.
- How vulnerability can combat misogyny within trans communities
- Vulnerabilities and doors as a queer mixed woman
- Coping with internalized misogyny, consciously staying away from men, and familial dynamics
- Nuances of high school…

Well, since it's International Zine Month and I figured I would write SOMETHING about my most current zine. It's called Both/And, and it's kind of about addiction, kind of about anxiety, kind of about meditation...I don't want to label it too much but it's most definitely QUEER and most definitely MENTAL HEALTH-based (I am a therapist). So, yeah, if anyone wants to trade, that would be rad. I also have issues of my previous zine called THE KEG THE CAKE THE COCK left too, which is also kind…Continue

Over a year ago I wrote a letter to Microcosm Publishing expressing my concerns with their continuing to involve an abuse perpetrator in their organisation. They never responded to me. This week, there are many more of us writing- united- to Microcosm. This time I hope we’re too loud to be ignored.
Here’s the …Continue

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. The video also turned out to be quite excellently awesome. I have wanted to get it…Continue

Better, drawn is a new place for people to share stories about long-term and chronic mental and physical illnesses, told in the form of short comics. The site is a way for people to share experiences that might otherwise be difficult to talk about openly. In fact, we think that sometimes things can be said better when they’re drawn; hopefully, these comics might help some people…Continue

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…Continue

Hello out there!
My name is Sonia and I used to work with a group of womyn from Maine called the Mimi Collective. For about three years, we dedicated ourselves to learning and providing resources and workshops about
reproductive and sexual health, consent, assault prevention, survivor
support, gender and queer and feminist hystory. The opportunity to
learn about our bodies, deconstruct oppression and grow in a safe space
will be an inspiration for my work for years…
