We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Absent Cause, my new zine focused on underground and dark culture, is now available.

I created AC to explore topics that resonate with me and many of the artistic and political people whose work I respect and admire: underground cultures, hidden histories, feminist and queer sexualities, chosen families and radical politics; vampirism, the gothic, horror and paganism; surviving abuse, coping with mental illness, self-harm and suicide.

I LOVE TRADES! If you make a zine, comix, stickerz, mu-sick or whatever, I'd love to swap with you and help promo your stuff.

The first issue of Absent Cause features:

Interviews with
* Velocity Chyaldd, Vulgaras singer/songwriter and all-around badass
* Tina Elshalakany, Arab-American student activist
* Vampiress Jessika, fat-positive model and photographer
* Jessica Mills, author of radical parenting guide "My Mother Wears Combat Boots"
* Empress Nightshade, haunted house impresario and founder of the Shadow Box Theater program for autistic kids

Poetry and essays by
* Imani Henry
* Eman Rimawi
* Amanda Harvey
* Mohammad Awadallah
* Courtney Laine Jones
