Although the series is finished now and out of print, sometimes I perform them at readings. Get in touch if you'd like me to read at an event you're involved with."

A day or so, and my heart wasn't my own anymore. I knew I'd never be alone again. I found me some angels." If you like that style of writing, you'll recognized the gifts of this writer."

Songs About Ghosts
(NY(US)
"Songs About Ghosts chronicles Jasmine's friendship with a talented but troubled young piano player she met at summer camp when she was 13. While sifting through old letters and journals eleven years later, she decides to contact him again. The result is a melancholy tale which comprises one of the best perzines I've read. Jasmine doesn't need to prove her own hipness to us; she simply relates a story that is important to her and written well enough to interest a stranger as well. Anyone who went to summer camp, who started listening to the Beatles in middle school, or who reminisces over childhood mementos will appreciate her perspective. The artwork, which in any other context might seem silly and carefree (butterflies, photographs of friends), comes across as mournful in this zine: the butterflies are in Xeroxed black and white, and coins block peoples' faces from view. Overall, Songs About Ghosts is as haunting as its title suggests." Zine by Jasmine Dreame Wagner. Quoted from www.zinesters.net.

Susie is a Robot
(US)
Susie is s Robot is one of those special zines that you don’t come across very often. LB wrote it all during a period of time when she had a serious illness that she was told would kill her. I tried to think of what I would write if I were in that situation, if I believed that my life would be over soon, but I couldn’t imagine it. What LB does do is to write a series of letters to a number of significant people in her life, in order to communicate with urgency all the things on her mind that she doesn’t want left unsaid. The zine is largely made up of these letters, and of graphic squirm-inducing accounts of all the tests and medical procedures that LB has to go through during her time in the hospital. It makes you realise how violent and unforgiving medical “care” really is, especially for people who are seriously ill. The whole thing is unbelievably powerful."

Looks at consent, sex, dealing with aggression and arguments, validating stories and listening. Contains contributions and testimonies from both survivors and non-survivors.

In between the fuzzy drunkenness and hung-over ramblings are the occasional moments of clarity and softness and the occasional moments of detached facetiousness. She writes about visiting her family the same time as the pope’s death, about being queer in Poland and how people subsequently respond to her. She writes about the people in her life, relationships, day to day events and building hopes for the future. I don’t normally talk about a writer having “style” cos I think it sounds elitist, but in this particular case I think it really deserves a mention."

This issue has been laid out in a very classy-lady fashion by a friend of mine who's a talented graphic designer. It's also the first time I've worked collaboratively and I have to say: I
really enjoyed it! This zine is one of my favourites to produce so far and it might just float your boat too" “ I have never been so lonely, and yet so hopeful. I haven’t wanted t write as much, but what I have written seems like it’s pretty politicized and full-on and sometimes kinda angry. I guess it’s true.

SATSUMA! is in its beginning stages. So far it's just me - no editorial staff, no accountant, a small circulation, and friends who can write/draw/think. I am trying to avoid several things: pretentiousness, pointless ranting, and droning/whining. In essence, no crap. Just quality. Hard work. Independence. FREEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM! This little packet of papers, and this web site, hopes to be relevant to someone, something - but most of all, I hope that it will be easy to peel, seedless, and just right.

"string section is about growing up, getting past, and moving on. it's about fucking + fucking up + getting fucked over. it's about addiction to drugs + addiction to silence + addiction to victimhood i did this in chronological order, starting at zero, ending at twenty two, my age now. it's a blow-by-blow of my life, kind of a road map, kind of an inventory. i want to warn people that this zine may be triggering, as it deals with a sexual assault & how it affected my teenage years & how it still affects me now. the details: it's 100 pages, quarter-sized, and has a pretty cover. all the images are taken from 50s films. it's very text-heavy."
