Telegram Ma'am issue twenty-two now available!

Issue twenty-two of my perzine, Telegram Ma'am, documents some of the happier times of 2010, which I consider my best year so far - though I intend to make 2011 even better. I traveled quite a bit throughout the year, moved back to the city I'm in love with, and did a lot of hard work on my mental health and self-esteem, so that's what this issue is about. I've written about:

- being zinester-in-residence at the Anchor Archive in Halifax, Nova Scotia

- attending the 10th Annual…

Telegram Ma'am issue 20

I made this zine as zinester-in-residence at the Anchor Archive / Roberts Street Social Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia in July 2010. This is a very text-heavy zine, about 10,500 words. In Telegram Ma'am #20, I write about:

- being on disability (and dealing with a lot of stupid questions about it)

- thinking about ways of "contributing to society" outside of conventional job settings

- money stuff that I don't really like talking about but had to get it out of my…

Upcoming Zine Residency and Other Travel Adventures

I'm gonna be in Halifax from July 5th - 18th doing a zine residency at the Roberts Street Social Centre; a list of all the 2010 residents and their projects, including a few friends of mine and other lovely folks, can be found here. I'm nervous, of course, but excited as well. I've been looking forward to this for a long time, and was so surprised when I was accepted for a residency, that I… Continue

Telegram Ma'am issue 21!

Available in my Etsy shop: http://schoolformaps.etsy.com

Spring is here! Intoxicated with the sunshine and flowers, I banged out issue 21 of Telegram Ma'am on two of my favourite typewriters within about a week or so. This issue is fairly different than more recent issues of my zine; there is less focus on mental health (though I do include a short list of things that have been good for my…

Tukru and I made a split zine across the ocean!

Telegram Ma'am #18 is a love letter to my bike, a beautiful vintage cruiser. There are notes on anxiety and depression as well, being a weird girl in a small town, going to zine gatherings, and adventures with my local friends. I write about learning how to ride my bike again after the snow melted, late-night bike rides, hanging out at the library, and challenging myself to communicate more assertively.

In which one zinester regains access to her PayPal account...

Hello friends! A few months ago I lost my PayPal account (it is a long story involving debt, an expired credit card, and crummy customer service on the part of PP, please don't ask), but I just recently got the account back, so I just wanted to let you know that you can now, once again, get zines from my Etsy shop and pay with PayPal rather than well-concealed cash. I also wanna thank the kind people who continued reading my zines in the meantime without griping about the wee inconvenience of… Continue

Other Places You Can Find My Zines

Since losing my PayPal account, my zines have become a little less accessible to some folks. At this time I can only accept trades and well-concealed cash. I wanted to provide a link to distros that carry my zines, or that will soon be carrying my zines. A few of these distros also have zines that are no longer available directly from me. Special thanks to the fine friends who keep my zines in stock and get them out to those who wanna read them!

My Etsy Shop -… Continue

Life Without PayPal

My PayPal account was closed a few weeks ago, and I am still adjusting to life without it. It’s funny how little time it takes for such a service to be taken for granted and then one day, it’s gone.

Now I’m back to the good old days, accepting only cash or trades for my zines. Remember well-concealed cash? Once PayPal came along, all those cute little envelopes with stickers and colourful ink, bundled up $1 U.S. bills and Canadian $2 coins taped to a piece of paper or thin cardboard… Continue
