HEARTSHAPED is a project I started in 2003, when I was 16 or 17. It has always been a perzine: a DIY mini-magazine with little stories and observations that start out as entries in my journals.

heartshaped #7 is the latest issue – unfortunately it's currently out of print!

 

While I mull over what to include in heartshaped #8, please enjoy these selections from earlier issues:

a surreal mini-story inspired by a long train ride. from heartshaped #5.

possibly the most emo thing ever written, this is a reflection on my changing relationship with music. written when I was 19, from heartshaped #2.

a short story about the thrill of making eye contact with your crush (written when I was 17!). this was the year I was obsessed with writing stories in the 2nd person. from heartshaped #1.
