This weekend Food for Thought Books in Amherst will host the annual Pioneer Valley Zine Fest. Chelsea Dirck will be there, will you?
I have been making zines for the past four years or so, mostly from my personal journals. Rather than releasing the zines under one title with many issues, they usually are all named something different: Last Year, Trying Really Trying, Leaving/Gone. Most of my stuff is about growing up, moving away, being homesick, falling in love, and just trying to figure out what the hell to do with yourself. The images below are from my most recent zine Last Year. This zine documents my entire relationship with my partner at the time, falling in and out of love over the course of a year or so. —CD
