Trigger warning: zine contains discussion of addiction/alcoholism, PTSD, depression, self-injury, trauma, and child abuse.

Writer Clementine Morrigan’s latest zine, Seawitch, is a diary-like confessional that is isolating and scary but also shameless and unapologetic, and kinda proud. I feel like this is a story about a successful coming-of-age. Or maybe it’s just about survival.

Morrigan starts off by letting us see just what social anxiety feels like. It’s the ability to say it all in your head, but never aloud: “I want to be able to hang out with you.” We see these deep desires that will never been satisfied — these needs that can be conceived within the mind, but remain trapped inside the body.

Throughout the zine she gains momentum; she embraces her queerness, she explores polyamory. She might even have found love. There is hope. “I want to go out dancing. I want to travel. I want to try burlesque.” She is empowered. She is owning it. She prays. There’s good moments. There is a lot of shit as well, but she is going to be okay. (Rekha Tulsiram)

  1. Hi there, I discovered your website by the use of Google while looking for a

    I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.
    Hi there, simply changed into alert to your weblog through Google, and

    for brussels. I will be grateful for those who continue this in future.
    Lots of folks will probably be benefited from your writing.

    • Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the
      web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
      think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the
      nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
      people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
      Thanks
