WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT THE ZINES YOU CREATE AND/OR WHY YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO TABLING AT L.A. ZINE FEST 2016?: I create zines out of love for untold stories and underground publications. It is so vital to shine a light on the experience of poc folks! As a chicana mujerista I am tired, and angry, that white men still dominate the media, I am here to reclaim that! Estoy tan excited to be back in Califas for L.A. Zine fest! I have been planting seeds in Chicago but my roots are forever in Califaztlan. I look foward to meeting other poc zinesters! La lucha sige!

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT THE ZINES YOU CREATE AND/OR WHY YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO TABLING AT L.A. ZINE FEST 2016?: As a very shy person, my zines/art are how I communicate myself to the world. My subject matter runs the gamut from sharing my personal story to expressing my views of my city and the world. I’m very anti-media control/anti-corporation so I often express my frustration with this, too. But everything I make is deeply personal – what comes straight from my heart, whether that be social commentary or issues from my own life.

WHO:  Pensive Proletariat Press
FIND MORE AT: www.pensiveprolepress.com

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT THE ZINES YOU CREATE AND/OR WHY YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO TABLING AT L.A. ZINE FEST 2016?: My primary zine, “Spaceships & Schizophrenia” is radical, absurd, and humorous Science Fiction and Mental Health advocacy and awareness. I’m 27 years old and have had Schizophrenia and ADHD for my entire life. I work to reduce stigma and ignorance, promote a productive societal dialogue, reach out to people struggling with mental illness and/or addiction and their loved ones, and ultimately contribute to greater acceptance. The Science Fiction is influenced by Philip K. Dick, Ursula K. Leguin, Octavia E. Butler, Kurt Vonnegut, and Michael Moorcock. It is firmly rooted in Anarchism, Feminism, Existentialism, fundamental human equality, and various other principles. However, it’s not necessarily harsh or divisive. It can be enjoyed by people who may not identify with a given idea. It’s also largely humorous. I will have 6 issues. I will also have 2 Poetry Chapbooks and a Novella. Everything will be special LAZF editions on heavy, colored paper hand-numbered out of one hundred. I hope to see you!
