a place for zinesters - writers and readers
My zines were recently reviewed by Helen at Bookwormers New and Used Book Exchange (www.bookwormers.co.nz). See below:
Little Grrrl Lost & Found Zine Review
Mmmm what’s a zine, quickly better look that one up on Google, got to write a review for one.... well that was my first introduction to the world of zines and luckily for me Little Grrrl Lost & Found was no disappointment and a great place to start!
When you buy these zines you are receiving about 20 pages of inspired genius. They are just oozing creativeness, are very well written, filled with great topics, interesting facts, creative writing (poems and short stories) and all sorts of other bits and bobs.
To give you an idea of what to expect in these zines here are a couple of things that I particularly enjoyed....
Issue no.6 has a wonderful article about The Flapper Revolution which I didn’t know anything about. It’s seems quite disappointing that we don’t know about these strong and passionate women who have paved the way for gender equality and women’s rights. So now with this new information I am reminded to go forth with the renewed inspiration to show those boys what us ladies are really made of!
Another part I enjoyed was in Issue no.5’s creative writing section. The author’s challenge was to Write about why you think or don’t think that each of us is responsible for our own happiness.
A part of her article explained how she began to overcome negative thoughts by carrying around a notebook and writing her negative thoughts down....then replaced these with a positive thought. Brilliant if you ask me!
The biggest thing that hit me when I read these is that they are more than just the author’s ‘work’. To me they seem to be a form of inspiration, a form of therapy, something that would inspire you to really do something to help yourself, whether it’s just reading for the love of it or giving you the push start that you may need to take action.
So if you are looking for a quick, easy and inspirational read then I highly recommend the Little Grrrl Lost & Found zines.
