Why do you create zines?
Reality Hands ‘publishes poetry and fiction or something’. Submissions are open, and there are no restrictions on what you can send in! Looking forward to seeing the collections put together by No Glykon!
Why do you create zines?
I started making zines because of the distinct lack of a DIY writing community in my area.
Why does self-publishing appeal to you?
I have an affinity for projects where I can be in control of all aspects of it. I don’t want to compromise. Self-publishing is a kin to the DIY music community I am a part of.
How long have you been creating zines?
A couple years.
What new projects are you working on this year?
Issue 4 of Reality Hands and a screen-printed comic by James Roo.
What will be at your table this year?
Reality Hands, some chapbooks, Flood’s screen-printed book, and Pull Trigger.
