There are a lot of things I love about this little zine. Its subject, for one (hometowns!). But also its wonderful nostalgia, its sadness, its subtle beauty. I also love that most the authors seem to be in their early to mid-30's and have this tempered idealism. Many are coming home or pining for home, or wanting to find home, or wishing they'd got out and it's so beautiful and tragic, all at once...[ continued ]

A beautiful reprint of the second issue of Where You From, the zine about hometowns. Various authors (including our own Joshua James Amberson) give their thoughts on where they’re from. And it’s wonderful. A fascinating study of place, home, community, identity, and so much more.

Reflections on life in late '80s/early '90s small town New Hampshire, set against major news events of the time period. From the Challenger explosion to the L.A. Riots to hometown police brutality, Hope covers a lot of ground and does it well.

She reflects on her teenage perception of these events and the discussions she wishes teachers and family would have had around them, but also leaves space to think about what draws people to her home state and tell the story of a spiritual path that started with a minimum wage job bussing tables...[ continued ]

Combining her long-running Keep Writing postcard project, a community art grant, and a zine series about the idea of home, Hope Amico asked people in the summer heat of New Orleans to write about how they define home. 

Where You From #6 delves into the ins-and-outs of this immersive project—letter-pressing five-thousand postcards, going to multiple events a day, and simply trying to make the project make sense...[ continued ]

The latest (and most gorgeous yet) from Portland literary zine, Windowcat. Playful, daring, varied, and so so good.

40 pages, half-letter size, hand-sewn binding, letter-pressed covers...[ continued ]

Another zine classic from Portland's own Moe Bowstern. In the third issue of Xtra Tuf (the zine all about the world of commercial fishing in Alaska) Moe tries out the old ways. Instead of dealing with the drama on the boats, she joins some friends on beach and hauls nets by hand. What follows is an entertaining peek into a world most people don't get to see.

Xtra Tuf #3 is also a zine epic to top all zine epics...[ continued ]
