    Episode 21: Book Club! - The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    Episode 21: Book Club! - The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    Last month, we re-visited The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. We were a little (completely) wild about this book circa 2007, but how do we feel now? Does the story read differently at the ages of 26 and 27? What made us love this book so much in the first place? How do you write about sexual abuse, responsibly? Is Charlie actually a little s****y to the women in his life? This + more discussed within.

    Episode 18: Making Zines With Ali Mullins

    Episode 18: Making Zines With Ali Mullins

    This week, we are joined by Charlotte-based artist Ali Mullins to discuss what, why and how she has found herself producing zines. Excerpts from Ali's first (public) zine are now on the site, www.manquemagazine.com, and full copies are available for print and download via her Gumroad account.

    While on The Manqué, Ali and Monica lament the creative process: why is it so hard to make art, even when all you want to *do* is make art? How do you decide what your art is worth? What happens when you put it out into the world and attach that art to your identity? This and more in this week's episode.
