a place for zinesters - writers and readers
So, some of you may know about my history with Microcosm Publishing and Joe Biel. And, if you don’t, you can read this post here.
At the very end of last year a supposed public statement from Microcosm was posted here.
I posted my response here.
Well, a new statement was actually posted on the Microcosm site here.
I would suggest your read it if you are interested and please leave a comment about it if you can. I think it would be helpful.
I’m going to close this post with a quote from Sparky Taylor, a former Microcosm employee, that was left in the comment section that make me very sad but sums up my feelings as well.As a member of Microcosm for 4 years and a former partner of Joe Biel, I am sad to say that I no longer support Microcosm Publishing. I cannot support a group of people who so adamantly claim to oppose abuse, but in practice have let it continue for years. This abuse was perpetrated against me, and I have remained largely silent in hopes that Microcosm could be salvaged. I no longer believe this is possible.
With much love and thankfulness to all my wonderful zine friends that I’ve kept or made along the way,
