TwilightGirl on Projects, Poetry + Yam-Eating

Here are a few photos of me and my zine at MoCADA’s D-I-Y festival:

making zines at my table

Whew! Making a zine is a labor-intensive process! If you’re thinking about making one, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to put it together.

What I used to make my zine:

  • Glue stick
  • Hole punch
  • Binder rings
  • Cardstock (in various colors)
  • 8×11 printer paper (lots of it)
  • Paper cutter

TwilightGirl on Projects, Poetry, and Yam-Eating includes original, hand-drawn illustrations by me, Hungry, a series of poems concerning Black women and eating problems, ruminations on freedom and the performative aspect of history (particularly as it relates to people of color), and tips on how to conjure inspiration when writing. I also break down extensively the most important components in a spoken word poem and discuss how to bring these elements out in your writing. I sold five zines at the festival! If you are interested in purchasing a zine, email me at info [at] blacknectar [dot] me.
