Projects

I teach workshops on zine making and the history and culture of zines to kids, adults, and anyone in between. Please contact me if you'd like to hire me to teach one at your school, library, rec center, university classroom, cryptoporticus, tea room, root cellar, garage, samizdat print shop, or other grassroots space.

I host a show series with my husband, Joseph Carlough, in the East Falls Zine Reading Room. Past performers have included poets, memoirists, comics artists, a folk duo, a pop punk band, and a chiptune musician. Visit the website to sign up for our mailing list!

With my friend Nadine Schneider, I do a blog project called Portrait of a Closet that documents what people wear and why they wear it. She takes the photos and I do the interviews.

I'm on the board of directors of The Soapbox Community Print Shop & Zine Library in West Philly. The Soapbox has a studio with letterpress and screen-printing equipment for member use, and a library of 2,000 zines and artists' books. We also host readings, workshops, and art shows.
