I’ve been making zines since I was 16. I put my teenage heart into little paper pamphlets and sent them all around the world. One day I got an email from Janell for a trade. We loved each other zines a great deal and become friends! Janell has been involved with the zine scene for 2.5 years and has created more than 20 different zines. She asked me to invite LAND readers to submit their stories into the zine. What is a zine, you ask? Here’s the wiki.
Here are some details about the project:
Dear You: Letters to Lost Friends is a compilation zine project containing letters to people who for various reasons, are not in our lives anymore.
It is inevitable that people who enter our lives, leave eventually. Dealing with people leaving is not easy, but it is the ways some of them leave that just make it a lot more difficult to handle. The sudden non-talking, the disinterest, the distance, death…
This could be due to many reasons, major disagreements, moving away physically or emotionally, breakups, differences, changes in life circumstances, deaths and etc.
If you would like to participate or learn more, here is the website. The due date is November 30th, 2011, so please hurry!
