Perzine, Clemen­tine Mor­ri­gan, clemen­tinemor­ri­gan.com, $3.00

It is dif­fi­cult for us all to wel­come feel­ings of self-re­flec­tion and to ques­tion the pat­terns ex­ist­ing in our lives. Clemen­tine Mor­ri­gan, a self-de­scribed writer, artist, and witch, has cre­ated an op­por­tu­nity for us to ex­er­cise hon­esty and com­pas­sion with the new­est edi­tion of their se­rial, seaw­itch. Clemen­tine is a pro­lific zinester with perzines, es­says, and other art. Seaw­itch #11 is a free-form per­sonal di­a­logue on learn­ing to heal, get­ting to know your body, ques­tions about the con­tent and di­rec­tion of your life, bi­pho­bia, gen­der, and madness. Clemen­tine does a mas­ter­ful job of walk­ing through com­plex­ity, of un­pack­ing the de­ci­sions we make about the way we ex­ist in the spa­ces in our lives and about what they need to get through. Though the zine can be hard to read, as Clemen­tine cre­ates im­agery and nar­ra­tive about trauma, it feels like a gift. Sto­ries about strug­gle and power cre­ate a boom­ing voice which asks us all what it would mean to rad­i­cally own our own sto­ries, to truly work to un­der­stand our­selves. (CJ Blen­ner­has­sett)
