We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

How do you deal with the uncertainty and possible imminent backlash when writing a perzine and reflecting on people and occurrences as truthful as you can? Like i war against myself because I want to be honest...I need to b and get some of this shit out, but I don't want to sever ties...burn bridges...make anyone an outcast....

Any suggestions?

Yeah I understand it...I do actually agree that the truthfulness of the piece should come first.

I think this is a great question. I've been pondering the same thing and I've come to the conclusion that it is most important to get at what the heart of what you're saying first. Change the names and mabye some details later to throw people off but on a first draft just really try to get at what you're really trying to convey.

For instance i'm working on a conspiracy for my zine involving a local organic farm that is fairly popular in the town here, especially around the people I might consider distributing my zine to. That being said, I'm going to keep the general idea of this "conspiracy" but change the instance from a farm to a coop or workers exchange program. Something, I dunno what yet. Do you see what i'm saying though?
