i have pretty much had the same haircut for most of my life (short brown bob)
My favorite zine at the moment is called pennyroyal by someone called Zoe b. found at bluestockings bookshop in nyc. It’s an awesome zine about the writers experience as an abortion doula and some pieces about the history of abortion.
What do you like about Olympia, or if you’ve never been, what are you most looking forward to experiencing outside the fest?
I haven’t been to Olympia yet but I’m honestly excited about the local 2am food. I’m a sucker for diners and anything of the like, bring it on. I also hope that it looks a bit like the show twin peaks nearby(I’m an east coast gal).
What makes your zines recognizably yours?
What makes my Zines mine would probably be the theme of plants or pastel colors.
What motivates you to finish a zine?
What motivates me to finish a zine is definitely the deadline of a fest. I’m even trying to crank one out right now last minute here on the road.
What is your weather prediction for this year’s fest?
It will almost certainly snow the day of the fest. Or maybe rain.
What workshop are you the most stoked about?
The workshop I’m most excited for is the don’t overthink it one. I often need to remind myself of the awesomeness of diy when I’m stuck and just fucking do it.
