SHE Zine is a renegade publication on living fully alive.
This is for us.
The ones who are woken up, or waking up, or who want to but don’t quite know how.
You know what I’m talking about: that feeling that life as you know it is not enough anymore, or it never was and you’re just realizing that fact. You’re not sure you really WANT it to change, but you know it needs to, or you’ll die. Not physically. But there are many ways to die.
SHE Zine is for those of us who want to live fully alive. Who want to show up as vibrantly + authentically as possible in their own lives. Who use creativity — be it writing or painting or cooking or carpentry or or or! — as a vehicle of self-awareness, healing, and growth.
This is for we who want to change the world. Our personal worlds, and the big one we all share. We want to live in a society that is more fair, more empathetic, ore wild-in-all-the-right-ways, more loving, less violent, less manically driven.
SHE Zine is for you.
Filled with words, art, poetry, and more, it is here to encourage you. To inspire you. To tell you that you’re not alone. That the risk is worth it. That you can fall apart in order to come back stronger, that you will live to tell the tale, and be the better for it.
All words without obvious attribution are created Beth Morey, the person who is apparently in charge here (uh oh). Expect imperfection.
