We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I made this zine as zinester-in-residence at the Anchor Archive / Roberts Street Social Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia in July 2010. This is a very text-heavy zine, about 10,500 words. In Telegram Ma'am #20, I write about:

- being on disability (and dealing with a lot of stupid questions about it)
- thinking about ways of "contributing to society" outside of conventional job settings
- money stuff that I don't really like talking about but had to get it out of my system
- getting out of the mental health system, and then back into it
- my last stint on inpatient at the hospital
- stories about my therapist
- my loss of interest in music
- looking for meaning in chronic pain
- facilitating a workshop on Mental Health & the Concept of Home (as well as inserts of art created during said workshop)
- re-reading the Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery
- being in the Baby-Sitters Club Fan Club when I was a kid

...and more. Yeah, there's a lot to take in here. This is a thick, text-heavy zine. It's 50-pages, quarter-sized, cut & paste. Every cover is coloured in - yours will be a surprise.

I accept payments via PayPal or well-concealed Canadian or U.S. cash. I'm not accepting trades right now because I'm broke.
