I have been active as a self-publisher since 2010. Between 2010 and 2016 I ran the fat positive fashion blog Fatty Unbound, which was a blog that critically explored intersections of fashion, fatness, queerness and class through outfits, memoir writing and non-fiction. The blog was featured on a bunch of media platforms including BBC, The Times, Bitch and The Daily Express. I currently have a medium profile which I use as an informal blogging platform.
Since 2012 I have been producing zines. They include Make It Work (a DIY fat positive fashion and craft zine), Hard Femme (a perzine about intersections of fatness, femme identity, class, trauma and histories), and Move Under Yr Own Power (a compilation zine of interviews with women and queers who make DIY music). My zines all explore intersections of identity, cultures, histories and craft and you can buy them online here.
In June 2021 I self-published a compilation book of my zine and blog work called From the Gut: Collected Zine Writings. The book is stocked in selected independent bookshops, and can be bought online here.
As a zine maker I have run workshops for libraries, heritage services and arts organisations including UCL, National Science and Media Museum, Central St Martins, the National Trust and Mesmac’s West Yorkshire Queer Stories project.
