All five zines! I biked A LOT of territory in this amount of time! Normally this would be around 10 dollars, but you get it for 7, because you’re interested in my ridiculous life. Do you do a distro? Get in touch and I’ll give you a better deal if you want more. For real!
Bike touring, dumpster diving, camping wherever I can fit my body!
ALSO: for the overseas folks, I understand the shipping is really high, but these weigh a lot, and I have been losing money on them when I shipped them at the old price. So I had to even it out, and this way I break even instead. Sorry, but that’s the state of shipping today. Booooooo
Hand written/drawn zine offering ideas and inspiration for spreading positivity around yourself and your world! Buy it, do it, color it, then pass it on!
This listing is for all 5 Letters to My Therapist zines.
1 – Describing my cognitive traps– those silly little ways your brain keeps you down and depressed.
2 – Thoughts and experiences on using medication for mental health.
3 – My experiences with therapy, what worked, what didn’t.
4 – Feelings of detachment, dissociation, anxiety.
5 – I spat this out as the “recovery” zine but it’s more like, “these are all the reasons I have decided to stop writing this zine series.”
Beware: Breeding ground for various triggers.
These zines are usually $2 each, buy as a pack of 5 and you’ll get $2 off! A mixture of B&W and color, all quarter-sized, 15-30 pages each.
They are listed separately while supplies last. If you’re interested in distro’ing this series I will print for that, but otherwise this is the last run for quite a while. Get in touch — michelle [!at] busyweekends.com
BONUS! All bundles come with a 6th addition to this zine series, P.S. This zine is only sold with the bundle. If you would like an issue of P.S. but don’t want to buy the bundle, email me about a trade! P.S. talks a bit about what I’ve been doing since the end of this zine series, some thoughts on depression, community, changing the world, etc… and includes pages from my journal.

A Struggle to Stay Conscious #5
Ways that misogany has negitively impacted their life. Self-worth and sex and dissociation. I love this zine, the rawness of self-criticism and trying to find a way out.
A Struggle to Stay Conscious #7
Queerness and naming; meeting their new girlfriend at queer Dungeons and Dragons group, and it being amazing to be with another “trans crazy alcoholic…boderline punx,” frustration with their 12 step program but it also being helpful
For this zine I have chosen to respond to key articles in Spare Rib that I have found interesting, and that are annoyingly still relevant today. I am interested in activism and showing unrepresented and often unspoken stories, at least in mainstream media, that are important in challenging oppressive societal norms. This zine looks at social cleansing, racism, classism, transphobia, the 1984 UK miners strike, sex worker’s rights, Palestine, sex education and abortion. It also features xAx, Charlie Cragg, Dorothy Innerd, Lorraine Malyan, Samia Malik and Sutapa Biswas!
This zine will be available at the Feminist Library on 29th August as well as online here, after the event.
36 pages, black and white, images and text.
Are you ready for this? MEOW – IS – IN – COLOUR! We asked for some colourful submissions and we got them along with some very nice black and white images too. This is a ground breaking issue so snap one up for £2 while there’s still time!

The usual trope about me not being able to make any kind of life decision whatsoever. I also talk about ‘treat yo’self’, paper rounds, falling in love with Manchester and organising Northwest Zinefest.
If you want to request pink, orange or yellow say so in the comments or I will surprise you! 🙂
