a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Evil Flower #5 was originally supposed to be a 24 hour zine but after a medication fiasco the goal was extended to 36 hours.

24 pages 1/4 size. Contains several…Continue
I haven't been here in a long time! Not since I first made Evil Flower #4. I think today I will scour We Make Zines, see what I have missed all this time.
