About Me

IMPORTANT NOTE: The situation with the one rater has been resolved.

Hi, I'm Olivia. I'm a 24 year old computer science student. I'm at home for the summer right now, so I have a lot of free time for swaps.

About Me: INTP, queer asexual, femme, Latina, chronically ill, autistic, introvert, zinester, programmer, artist, feminist, atheist, skeptic, secular humanist, LARPer, bibliophile, artist, writer, jewelry maker, gamer, lover of SFF, massive nerd, cat lover

My main love is zines, especially personal zines, compilation zines, and zines about interesting topics.

I write mostly personal zines, but I also make found object and fiction zines and minicomics, as well as edit some compilation zines. I write the zines (meta)paradox, Anecdata, Psychometry, and others.

In my personal zines I write about a wide variety of things, including mental health, being autistic, asexuality, college life, personal stories and dreams, queerness, atheism and religion, race and ethnic identity, identity in general, things I love, disability, having multiple sclerosis, science fiction and fantasy, and more!

Message me if you want to trade zines!

Comment: So sorry for just now rating this. Hubby got the mail (which is rare) one day and I didn't know. Then the stack of mail got shoveled around his office. I loved reading your story's intro. It sounds very intriguing and I look forward to adding to it. ~ Cari
