BROKEN PENCIL #83, $7.95, 8” x 10½”, magazine, 72 pgs.

A magazine of “zine culture and the independent arts.” Packed from start to finish, this seasonally released publication presents its spring issue. Its cover feature is about guerrilla gardening, the origins, instructions on how to do-it-yourself, and an interview with a guerrilla gardener. 2019’s top indie-writing winners (of a Broken Pencil contest) are featured, zine and book reviews, and a paper cutout stapler man is included. A good resource for checking out new zines when not at a zine fest! –Tricia Ramos (Broken Pencil, PO Box 203, Station P, Toronto, Ontario M5S 2S7 Canada)
