PICTURES OF MY TABLE AT FEMINIST ZINE FEST AT POWERLUNCHES LAST YEAR!!
I made a new ITMG zine at the end of last year, did tables and readings at the girlsgetbusyzine mini feminist zine fest at power lunches AND at the queerzinefestlondon but didnt really tell anyone or make any copies cus i got busy and forgot!!!
Reading from my zine was a new experience so VERY scary but also really fun, it was really nice to be asked and good to be challenged to do something totally out of my comfort zone »>and also to hear the other excellent women read from their zines!
I didn’t have a computer till recently due to being too broke so i have forgotten how to use the internet/ find it overwhelming at times!! I don’t have a smart phone either so sometimes i find generally the pace of the internet (and life?) too fast for my sometimes chaotic and disorganised brain… it takes me a while to do things/ cut and paste things/read things/listen to things…
But BARE WITH ME!!! I may be slow but i want to continue to share ideas/stuff ive made with a wider community than those people i might happen to see the day i decide to print a zine! So with the help of people lending me laptops ect i will to try to get better…
ALSO more physical copies of ITMG 2 plus online version and generally new writing/drawings coming soon.
watch this space….

HELLO. not really been working on the new zine as much as i wanted as i’ve been busy playing music all over the place. can’t complain really, theres a lot im excited about!
the next thing thats happening is HER NOISE: FEMINISM AND THE SONIC at the tate modern. Im playing violin in a performance of Pauline Oliveros’s ‘To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of their Desperation’ on the Turbine Hall Bridge tomorrow! its sold out but hopefully i can post some video/ audio stuff in the future. Oliveros has described the piece as a ‘feminist community of listening’ and its been so fun to be involved in and to play with all these amazing female experimental musicians… i might write something about Pauline in a zine one day i think she’s great.
cool poster for the Cry Parrot 5th birthday party in Glasgow!!!!
