ONLY LET IN THOSE WHO DESERVE THE PERSON YOU REALLY ARE: $?, 6½” x 10”, 12 pgs.

With a full color photo cover, filled with black and white photo insides, this zine consists of poems, short thoughts, and what feels like advice from a stream of consciousness. It instilled in me a sense of longing, of places I miss or think I miss. Some of the photos have strangers I recognize, or places I think I’ve been to, which contributes to the familiarity of text. The writer—who is not listed inside the zine—writes wonderful words, which speak like advice from an old friend or close family member. “Growing up is when you stop doing things you know are going to severely disappoint you,” is one such gem from it. I loved this zine and it gives the reader a feeling like you’re close friends with the writer. And maybe you are. Maybe you just don’t know it yet. –Tricia (Only Let In Those Who Deserve The Person You Really Are, [email protected])
