When people ask me whether people are still making zines today, I often tell them about Katie Haegele's wonderful literary zines. The one that prompted me to write this post, Word Math, is a collection of found poems, created from thrifted manuals, spam, and craigslist personals. The last is what particularly slayed me. You can listen to Katie reading it.
In addition to poetry zines, Katie publishes prose works on word nerdery (The La-La Theory), rummage and church sale shopping (White Elephants), old family tales (This Was Before You Were Born), and whatever all else pops into her old-fashioned yet punk rock head. Katie's zines are available through her Etsy shop.
Katie's zines should appeal to people who like not only literary zines, but also fanzines, personal zines, and they're all so carefully made with typewriting and vintage graphics, art zine aficionado's should enjoy them just as much.
PS Yeah this a cross-posting from the Barnard Library LiveJournal.
Since I graduated from high school, I stopped going to church, I discovered found poetry, and I got my wisdom teeth out. (introduction, 1st page)
