Slowly getting into my old/new groove of zine making and overall output for people to interact with+buy. My online shop is so neglected and full of cobwebs- I’m gonna open a fresh new store very soon with shirts, zines, packages, and other items that will actually be in stock lol. Also I’m so sorry to folks over the years who’ve asked me for tattoo drawings that I’ve kinda just flaked on- as my art practice evolves so do my habits and work ethic. I’m getting my shit together as we speak.
idk i just feel like i should be a Professional so that when i’m trying to apply for grad school and get professor jobs i can be like “ah yes, my poetry is published in these great lit mags” instead of being like “umm i printed some of my poetry out on the printer in my bedroom and mailed it to people on etsy.” maybe i should be less worried about my stupid Literary Career In Academia but i’m obsessed with it because i’m boring and a sell out :/
With the rediscovery of my old zine-making supplies (longline stapler, I have missed you), I’m thinking of putting together some small-run, low-cost booklets and zines. I have some topics in mind, but I’m curious as to what folks might be interested in, pulling from my background in conjure/rootwork, general folk magic, polytheism, and vodou.
What have you wanted to see available in a small, low-cost physical format that you haven’t been able to get your hands on before?
ive been writing poetry again but i cant decide how to share it… i dont like posting it on tumblr, and normally i would make a zine, but am i too old for zines now? at what point do i have to grow tf up and try to actual publish my poetry like an adult? but is poetry ever really an adult thing? also, who made the rule that publishing is the way to go anyway? i don’t wanna write for lit mags or money, I don’t wanna write polished poetry, i just wanna express things and sell them in inexpensive mediums so that anyone interested in my work can easily access them, but no one random could just type in a URL and see them
