RADVOCATE, THE v. 2, #11: $2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 40 pgs.

This zine is also “an unsponsored platform for writers, artists, and poets to submit their work to,” but advertising themselves as a spot for non-pros does not translate into a sub-par zine. This issue features poetry, color photography, comics / illustrated narratives, book reviews, music reviews, a six-word memoir, and experimental fiction and is superbly edited to include a good mix of work and a high level of quality. Ten stars! –Bianca (Ayahuasca Publishing, 3245 University Ave., Ste. 1430, San Diego CA 92104, theradvocateisamagazine.com)
