a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I will be tabling at the Chicago Zine Fest this year, which I am mightily looking forward to. I had a ton of fun attending the last two years, so I can only imagine that tabling at the darn thing will be even more exciting.
Just in time for the fest, a split I have done with my friend Carrie (of Brilliant Mistake and My Aim is True) will be available at both of our booths as well. So be sure to stop by, say hello, and trade zines!
Who is all coming to the…Continue

Sometimes everything you want to talk about, you can see it, hear it so clearly in your head, but somewhere between brain pulses and the pen in my hand, most of what I want to say is lost. This zine has proven this over and over again.
I believe I'm sticking with the evolution of my masochism. Some friends have expressed interest in such a zine, and it's also the core of many other things I've wanted to write about, such as anxiety, relationships, views of sex, and the coping…Continue

It was wonderful. Moments like that are beautiful, but few and far between.
I'd love to meet up with some…Continue
This zine took a long while to make. The writing was slow, the editing was slow, I moved house, then the cutting and pasting and scanning and printing, all of it was slower than I would have liked. But as they say, good things come to those who wait, right?

So, December thus far has not been productive zine-wise. I have a bunch of ideas in my head, but I cannot execute them in a zine. I have my apartment stories, some essays I've been writing on trying to date again, psychology things, letters I wish I could send to people. All sorts of ideas, but when I stare at the paper and hold the glue stick, I feel lost.
Summer is always more productive for me. Not sure why. Maybe I've just come to expect it and by happenstance I create a…
