The London Zine Symposium was fantastic. Met great people, saw some beautiful work, and loved loved loved reading with a cadre of funny and intelligent fellow zinesters. I’d tour with those guys. It rocked!
At the moment I’m working on Robyn’s Egg: A child’s Introduction to Menstruation (which I think I’ve mentioned before), and two companion children’s books, which is taking some honing of my rusty illustration skills. The other two books are ‘Rocket to the Moon’ (tampons as improvised toys and craft supplies) and ‘How Does Your Friend Make You Feel’ (a colouring and activity book based on menstrual euphemisms that I think might also make a good creative writing/comic workshop – stay tuned).
I’m also in the middle of developing my guide to sanitary disposal units: The SDU and YOU: Public Inconveniences. Stay tuned for the results of interviews with industry insiders!
We’re looking at summer plans and should have a couple of events lined up soon.
