No Snow Here #10 / $? / 36S / :20 / email@example.com /
It has been a while since Iâ€™ve seen a personal zine of any sort, so reading No Snow Here took a decent chunk of time. The writer of this zine is Nadia, and the topics broached in this issue include Arab-American identity and feminism. What Nadia comes back to a number of times during this issue of the zine is following through with oneâ€™s beliefs. If one calls themselves a feminist, why allow a friend to call women a â€œcuntâ€ or a â€œslutâ€? Consistency in beliefs seems to be the uniting thread through the entirety of this magazine. Also in this issue are Nadiaâ€™s travails with medical doctors during an HPV test and some small background about eir earlier life. This issue is short and only gives readers just enough information to get a taste for the zine. I know by the time I finished this issue of No Snow Here, I wanted to email Nadia directly and purchase the rest of the issues of the magazine. The zine is almost completely laid out by the computer but has a very cut and paste feel to it. The only time the issue becomes hard to read has to be during the opening piece, which has a fuzzy black font on a dark grey background. Of course, the text is still readable, but it is hard to discern at points. Still, a solid zine and one of the better perzines Iâ€™ve read and have reviewed. Email Nadia and purchase a copy.
