Chicago Zine Fest

Chicago Zine Fest

The Chicago Zine fest is likely to be attended again by yours truly! I am looking forward to getting out of Lexington for a while and enjoying part of my “spring” break. Tables all sold out, but I’m pretty excited about the event nonetheless. I went around and traded endlessly last year with the people stuck at tables and it worked out really well. Pretty stoked for a second round.


Zine Reading December 27th!

In Louisville, Kentucky, on December 27th at 5pm, at the Rudyard Kipling, I will be joining a few other zinesters to share our work. Please join us, it’s free!

Neckmonster 9: Audio Edition

Neckmonster 9, the most recent installment of the Neckmonster perzine saga (published in 2010), has been released in audio-zine format by Billy da Bunny at Bunny Ears Distro. It was read by yours truly. Click the picture to check it out – along with a bunch of other awesome zines!!!

Copy That! goes to Nashville!

Here is my modest setup from Handmade & Bound in Nashville, TN. Michelle of Indigo Zine split the table with me. :)

Hello friends!

Wow, it’s been a long, long time since I’ve updated. I have been really busy getting my Master’s degree in Library Science! Now that that’s over and I’m settling into regular life, I decided I’d give everyone a head’s up! You can get most of my publications at zinelibrary.info now, including this handy little tri-fold pamphlet, “What to do when you’ve been called out: a brief guide”




I’ve decided to make pronoun buttons.  Thus far, they say “He Him His,” “She Her Hers,” and “They Them Theirs.”  But if you want a custom one, let me know and I’ll whip you up something cool! I’m asking donations/trades for them; I’d ask for at least a dollar for a pack of all 3.  They are two-color black & yellow buttons with cut&pasted words on them.  I’ll get around to posting pictures someday.

I recognize that not everyone feels the need to label themselves with a pronoun. That said, I thought it might be cool as an option, if you wanted to raise awareness for gender-neutral pronouns like they/sie/hir/ze, or you wanted to wear a little reminder of your preferred pronoun, or you wanted to piss off squares.  Feedback is welcome.

In addition to these buttons, I can make any custom buttons you want!  Send designs & we can work out trades/rates.  Turnaround will probably be kinda slow while I’m in grad school but I’m happy to share my supplies with folks too!

The best way to get ahold of me is, as usual, by emailing me: neckmonster-(at)-gmail-(dot)-com.

Neckmonster 9 (or NCKMNSTR9, however you want to spell it) is out now!  Catch up with yours truly :)
Also, EMPOWER YR SEXY SELF is now available: a workbook for mapping and contextualizing your sexuality.  Enjoy!
