Hi, I'm Olivia M., and I've been involved in zine culture since Fall of 2014. Since I discovered zines I've made over 25 zines of my own, traded hundreds of zines with other zine-makers, edited the Asexual Content zine, helped found and run the Ace Zine Archive, run a zine blogcontributed to many compilation zines, tabled at several zine fests and other art events, run several zine workshops teaching about zines and how to make them, and almost completed work on a zine-trading social network Android app called Let's Trade Zines, to be launched in the near future. Basically, my life revolves around zines! Other current projects include being the head organizer for the Litchfield County Zine Fest and creating a zine anthology book of the first seven issues of my personal zine (meta)paradox.

I'm taking time off from school right now, which is why I created this Patreon. While I now have a part time job as a graphic designer, I still have lots of student debt to pay off, and I'd like to continue being able to do my creative work. Even donating a dollar a month will help me a lot!

Right now I'm focusing more on video game development to build up my portfolio and help me get a job, but don't worry! I still have more zine stuff in the works. Also, if you like my queer zines, you may like my queer, narrative-focused games, which I'll post about on this Patreon as well. Check out my games on Itch.iohttp://metaparadox.itch.io/

Identities that are important to me include: 26 years old, queer, panromantic, gray-aromantic, asexual, femme, autistic, chronically ill (I have multiple sclerosis and chronic depression and anxiety), neurodivergent, disabled, mixed Latina, atheist, secular humanist, feminist, skeptic, programmer, nerd, and cat lover.

I write about all of these identities and more in my zines, as well as write fiction, draw comics, take photos of interesting things, and cut and paste everything together!

  • (meta)paradox #1
