You might think we should know this stuff by now. We're all adults, right? Some of us rocketing toward our senior years, even! Yet self-care is, in my opinion, frequently overlooked and under practiced in our crazy post millennial lives. Whether you are a zinester or not, it's a good idea to check out the slow lane once in a while.
Maranda's zine shares concrete, practical advice for touring zinesters and stay at home zinesters. This is advice gleaned from lived experience, and it's like hearing an old friend share their wisdom with you. There is also some advice for first-time zinesters, some thoughts about writing for friendship, and more. Self Care for Zinesters is absolutely compelling reading.
