Nonfiction stories and letters about traveling, love, and feeling awkward. This is my first zine, and my only strictly nonfiction/perzine. Originally published in 2008.


Siler’s prose sings. The writing is tight, the quips are crisp, and the language is unique.

– Feminist Review

Walking away from her zine feels more like walking away from a personal, gripping, intense conversation.

– Broken Pencil

A tight, satisfying perzine.
