Be My Friend, Please – Mini Zine

This mini-zine is a performance in a zine that looks at loneliness when you are autistic. The story tackles friendship and asking for help. The zine itself features illustrations and instructions on how and where to act out the story (but as with the other performances in the mini-zine series, you can do it wherever you please).

Be My Friend, Please is available at – https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/532370792/be-my-friend-please?ref=shop_home_active_16

New Zine – Misremembering Sarah Kane

I have a new zine for sale!

Misremembering Sarah Kane Through My Own Suicide Attempts is a comic book zine about my own experiences with mental health, suicide and self harm. The zine features text, essays and comics. It is an abstract retelling of how I confuse my memories with my experiences of watching and reading plays by the cult 1990’s playwright Sarah Kane. I use comic books as a means to discuss being a suicide survivor and how this can affect memory and personal experiences.

Sarah Kane (3 February 1971 – 20 February 1999) was an English playwright who is known for her plays that deal with themes of redemptive love, sexual desire, pain, torture—both physical and psychological—and death.

The zine is –
