10 Dirty Little Secrets

Shannon was one of the organizers for the 24 Hour Zine Thing for a few years, and created this amazingly honest 24 hour zine for the 2007 challenge. If you participated in the 2007 24HZT Grab Bag exchange, you were lucky enough to receive a copy of this zine!

Name: Shannon
City: Dieppe, New Brunswick
Zine Goal: Size: I’m predicting quarter size, or tall half size
Personal Challenge: I’d like to make something more artsy as opposed to my typical perzine, or themed issues. But we’ll see when it all happens! My zines are usually only 16 pages, so 24 will be more of a challenge.

For her 24 hour zine, Shannon decided to explore the idea of “dirty little secrets”, noting on her first page that “it depends on the person, to determine how horrible the thing that was done” truly is. She goes on to list her own top ten dirty little secrets, describing her own feelings towards each of the subjects and how she handles these secrets throughout her everyday life. The secrets range from past experiences that she now regrets, her own feelings about herself, as well as recent events that had posed a problem in her life. Probably one of the most personal zines submitted to the 24 Hour Zine Thing project, Shannon’s zine is definitely a must-read.
