Where do you work on your zines?
The floor of my apartment and the UPS store.
What are your three favorite small-press/DIY publications?
Brainscan zine, Sioux Magazine, & Haitian Mag.
What advice would you give to a first-time zinester or to an aspiring zinemaker?
Get ready to put in a lot of hours for little or no initial result. Be a sponge; learn about everything in publishing, zines and writing that you possibly can, even if it seems irrelevant at the time. You will have to do a lot of work yourself, but don’t be too afraid or stubborn to ask for help. But if you are passionate about your subject, these setbacks won’t matter and you will have a lot of fun in the process!
What’s the best thing that ever happened to you because of zines?
Meeting and becoming a part of my local writing/performing arts community thanks to the zine workshop that I attended!
