"love letters to monsters" #3

i have a new issue of "love letters to monsters" out as of august 2010. it's a split with my friend & next-door neighbor (& long-time zinester) ailecia. she wrote "alabama grrrl" #9 & i wrote "love letters to monsters" #3. it's eighty quarter-sized pages, pretty heavy on the text. i wrote about topics including: moving to kansas, being a grad school widow, closing down my zine distro, becoming interested once again in writing fiction, the convoluted meaning of "community" in a punk/anarchist context, self-care & mental health, physical disability, tenants' rights, my father's unexpected death & my mother's unexpected conversion to islam, & more. ailecia wrote about what she wishes she would have known before enrolling in graduate school, tips on successfully integrating school with the rest of your life, grieving a friend who passed away too young, the excesses within the punk scene that lead to a culture of self-destruction, the importance of feminism, fat-positivity, & queer solidarity in punk scenes, an open letter to radical kids in lawrence calling them out on unchecked misogyny & violence, & more. we are both writing from an early 30s feminist personal perspective.

the zine costs $3 (anywhere in the world, including postage), which can be paid via paypal to learningtoleaveapapertrail@hotmail.com or mailed in cash to me at:
ciara xyerra
1126 tennessee st. #5
lawrence KS 66044

trades may be acceptable. i like politically-tinged personal zines. drop me a line privately to set something up.

distros are also welcome to order copies. wholesale is $1.50 each (again, including postage, & anywhere in the world), which can be paid in the same ways listed above. i also accept checks made out to "ciara xyerra".
