Why do you make zines?

I make zines because it's rewarding to exchange ideas and interact with the people who are interested in them. I get to feel the pulse of the room and meet other creative people who love what they produce. It's always a lot of fun and it motivates me to keep writing.

What was the inspiration for creating your first zine?

My crazy travel stories of almost dying was my inspiration for the first zine I created. I shared these stories orally with a few friends and they encouraged me to write them down. I tried writing those stories as if my best friend was right in front of me and I wanted to make them feel what I felt.
