Hi! I'm a feminist writer, editor, and artist who is constantly making new things. I worked for four years as the online editor and podcast host at  Bitch Media and am now an editor at political comics outlet  The Nib. I'm the author of the relationship guidebook Sex from Scratch: Making Your Own Relationship Rules and the sci-fi graphic novel Open Earth.

In January 2019, I'm starting an ambitious new project: making a zine every day for a year. Follow along as I aim to write, draw, fold, and photocopy 365 original zines. I love snail mail, so I'll be sending print copies of zines to patrons every month, along with stickers, postcards, and other ephemera I dream up.

I'll also be writing an illustrated newsletter! The newsletter includes things to read and do every week, plus personal stories about recent adventures, friendships, and failures.  

I want to have a collaborative relationship with my patrons—I'm always excited to take suggestions for zines or comics you want to me to make. I'm happy to answer questions and offer feedback if you have an idea or project you're working on. 

I'm honored that people want to support my work and ideas. It means so, so much that anyone would pitch in to help me create work I think is essential in the world. Keep in touch, friends!

Goals
$567 of $800 per month
Wow! This would be amazing. If I reach $800 a month, that means I'll have a lot of friends. So I'll write and illustrate a zine called "Making Friends in the 21st Century" about how to create and maintain genuine friendships, including ideas for hosting parties and games that don't make people want to run away.
