Excited to announce the arrival of these two new zines that we shall promote and sell at zine events.
They come from an author who inspires and whom I admire. They went through a tough time, feeling they had to admit their self to a psychiatric unit in a hospital, and this 'zine, called Feeling Alone?, explains their experiences as an in-patient with Borderline Personality Disorder.
They admit to finding it hard to ask for help, despite having such supportive family/partners around them. And this zine was a positive way of processing their thoughts and experiences as soon as they were back home.
Their second zine, We Are Adventurers, is about a trip to Amsterdam. This is a travel zine, with personal tales, but also it is about mental health recovery, and learning and looking to the future. There are also articles on being an aunty, and a gig review, plus recommended books.
SW Zines sold these zines at our stall at DIY Cultures (more on which later!), which was fun - I love recommening other people's zines which I am passionate about, and the moments when like-minded people 'get it' too. We are selling them via this site now too, so do get in touch if you'd like a copy/copies of these zines. And we'll be selling them at more events soon too.
And here is a link to their Etsy shop!
And their Twitter.
