November 15, 2008: Hello there! My name is Bea and I'm a theater and writing student from England. I've come to Portland for a month (through mid-November) to make zines and investigate lo-fi culture. I will base the content of these zines on my experiences of the city and also the experiences of people form Portland who I interview. I will also be using parts of the zines as text for performance when I return to England.
I'm very keen to meet as many people as I can, so if you would like to be interviewed or talk to me about the project, I would love to hear from you, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be distributing the zines that I make at Reading Frenzy.
