Zines

I've been making and editing zines since 2013. At first, I handwrote, typed, and pasted the words and images into a zine, but over time I've begun to employ incorporate more digital tools and collage in my work.

I am always happy to collaborate with other artists and zine-makers. Please don't hesitate to reach out!

This is the cover I created for a class zine compiled from work by my students in a multiculturalism course at DePaul University this spring. The course explored identity among indigenous and African-American communities in the US through the lenses of historical counter-narratives and indigenous and critical race theory. The students made zine spreads from their reflections on the content, and I compiled the spreads in a digital zine, making the cover myself using digital collage and hand-written text.

Lady Parts Zine V

2018

 

Lady Parts Zine was a zine that compiled creative works by female/femme/feminine-identifying folks. Much of the work reflected on femme experience, but there were no restrictions on content or form.

Issue five was the final issue of Lady Parts Zine. I have been editing the zine since its conception in 2013 and published work by more than twenty womxn in that time.

Fifty Feminist Mantras

This book began as a weekly blog post and blossomed into a year-long project with the purpose of helping readers embrace feminisms and themselves as feminists.

Inside, there are fifty feminist mantras arranged by week and season. Each mantra includes guided reflection and writing prompts, and there are blank pages for journaling. You can purchase the book here.

The cover was designed by Emily Jones, and the book was printed via CreateSpace.
