Making Zines // Reviewing Zines // Workshops & Activities
This issue of Sometimes I’m Dreaming deals with the upheaval wrought by moving home. Lisa writes about displacement and having to sacrifice her own routines in order to exist under her parents’ roof. Made to feel an intruder, she turns to writing to re-assert her identity, her words lovingly presented alongside drawings, patterned backgrounds and cut-outs. Fittingly, there is a section advocating creative hobbies, in which Lisa explains how taking up pastimes such as zine-making has helped her to feel she is accomplishing something. The zine ends on a note of wistful optimism, as Lisa makes lists of small pleasures and things she is looking forward to in the future.
