Please note-I haven't created a website for the zine yet, but check out my website jadeblackmore.com to find out about my background. Many of my poems were published in the 1990s in zines like Flower, AlphaBeat Soup, Lucid Moon, Sink Full of Dishes, Shockbox and Thirteen. My cousin and I put out a zine called Untitled in Chicago in 1994.
