Dessa Bayrock is creating zines, mail, and other weirdo, lovable stuff

I make tiny books and I send mail. These are really my strengths in life, which is why I started a tiny zine press and began mailing tiny books to the people I love. That means you!

There are definite perks to being a Patreon supporter. Maybe I'll send you tiny zines - be they poem, collage, meditation, micro essay, or joke book - every month. Or maybe you just like mail and you want a penpal. I'm here for that too. Either way, your support allows me to do what I love. Tiny books! Mail!

The press has now been running for five months and I'm so grateful and excited to be able to do what I do. You can visit the press site for more information about how and why it works the way it does, or visit the Etsy shop to get extra copies of our microchaps for all your friends. 

A little more about me: I'm a PhD student at Carleton University, studying CanLit and book prizes. I write poems about ghosts and Ontario and, once, my best friend's hair, which have been published in Spy Kids Review, Cotton Xenomorph, and IDK Magazine, among others. I also play third base on one of Ottawa's most poorly-scoring and lovable softball teams, volunteer on the board of a non-profit committed to building culture in the Fraser Valley, curate the literary section of Raspberry magazine, and once wrote a Riverdale-themed choose-your-own-adventure.
Tiers
Update pals
$1 or more per month
You'll get access to press updates through this page. Sneak peeks at new projects and behind-the-scenes content abounds! 
Original zine pals
$3 or more per month
You'll receive tiny, weirdo zines in the mail -- every one we publish, which means two a month! Will it be poems? Jokes? A collage? Maybe all of the above. Anyway, mail is great. You'll love it. Plus you'll get access to all my page, life, and press updates through this page. This early bird tier is now closed! Original subscribers keep the lower rate we introduced when we only published once a month. New subscribers can subscribe to the "New zine pals" tier, which carries all the same benefits!
Postcard pals
$4 or more per month
Do you like postcards? Trick question - everyone likes postcards! I'll send you one at postcard every month. And I'm not talking "wish you were here xo" - I'm talking cramming words onto the back of that sucker like it's going out of style. Plus you'll get access to all my page, life, and press updates through this page. 
New zine pals!
