lit 4 Mar 2015

Writer/editor Victoria Law is a strong believer in the power of the written word. She’s edited the zine Tenacious: Art & Writings by Women in Prison since 2002, is the author of Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women, and continues to write about intersections of incarceration, gender and resistance.

  • Looking for more? Check out the POC Zine Project, which (as its name indicates) spotlights zines by people of color across the country. And what a wide range there are—from political zines like Black Women Matter to food and recipe zines. [2 of 3]
  • And if you really really want more, check out the thousands upon thousands of zines at the ABC No Rio zine library on NYC's Lower East Side. If you're not sure what you're looking for, the zine librarian can help you navigate the bulging shelves and overflow boxes. [3 of 3]
