a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Our very favorite zine.
This, the tenth issue (!) of Ilse Content is the “home” issue. Places lived, the home you carry inside, travel, displacement, moving and staying put. It’s a world of daily magic- ghosts, visitations, nature, fear’s proximity to wonderment. Thoughts on what can be held onto, what can be deemed special, how there’s beauty in even the hard times. This issue made me well up from joy. The issue ends with a piece of fiction- a story of grandmothers, childhood, family, and home- tying this issue together perfectly in what is perhaps my favorite short story in all of the long Ilse Content history.
