Seawitch #2
I have hardly ever seen a zine address jealousy in a reflective way that shows paths toward healing and change, not just judgement of it. The first half of this zine is about having a first "jealousy freakout" and finding resources other than books on polyamoury to be especially useful. Jealousy as a teacher. Confronting and being honest about what the jealousy is; being ashamed of desire, being afraid of not being seen or important, not being exempt from a culture that treats women like objects, wanting to feel safe and whole and secure. Jealousy as a teacher, showing what she needs the courage to ask for, work on, and seek. The second half of the zine is about abuse and power and trauma -- working to regain the power within.

Reflections on how, despite the racism, sexism and homophobia that exists in punk, punk and anarchism have provided a way in to finding connection to other radical people of color, and other people who work on developing politicized language and action around racism.

Super thick zine with a lot of details of getting surgery, but also about way more than surgery: it's about finding a way to tell the true story of her life without reinforcing cultural assumptions and the problematic macro-narrative that has been created about transwomen, and also telling the truth, finding ways to tell her story so it can be universally understood.

Three of Swords: Beyond Mainstream Narratives of Polyamory
This is a collection of writing that came out of the experience of attempting poly, having a very hard time of it and closing the relationship with the intent of opening it again. The pieces in this zine document a personal journey but they also reflect on larger issues. The zine expresses the realization that mainstream poly lit is extremely over simplistic. Everyone is just expected to Ďown their jealousyí but there is no political, intersectional analysis. This zine goes beyond that and considers the way that polyamory can be complicated by things like mental health issues, trauma and gender. It considers the impact of misogyny and ableism on polyamory. It also questions the narrative of abundant love through an analysis of trauma and survivorship. This zine holds out hope for polyamory, values and desires polyamory and seeks to create space for more complex narratives within poly community and literature.
