GET TO KNOW YOUR ZINESTER: Awkward Ladies Club
What was your first zine about and when was it made?
My first zine was one of two for San Francisco Zinefest in 2012 called “Never Date Dudes From the Internet.” I was going through an old yahoo mail account and found a folder labeled “craigslist” – I thought it was from when I was looking for apartments when I first moved to California but it turned out to be every email I received when I put out a dating ad in 2005. I put it all together with the original ad I posted – it’s sort of a history of a slightly more innocent period of internet dating.
Describe your most recent zine.
My background is in the biological sciences and I worked in labs for 10 years, mostly with bacteria. The new book I’ll be bringing to LAZF is called “My Favorite Microbes” and is about the (mostly) friendly bugs that live in the world around us: soil bacteria, bacteria that live in volcanoes, bacteria that live inside other bacteria, bacteria in clouds that make ice form.
