sore throat, 2024

A collection of lessons still being repeated, sore throat is about the relationship between bodies and the emotions rushing through them, the work they need to do together. With the vulnerability of an animal exposing its neck, this zine takes a breath that pushes its chest out and builds a home with enough rooms to house every emotion. I am glad I care this much. I am glad to have coping mechanisms I have outgrown.

An Almost Perfect Summer Fling, 2023

 It’s the love story as old as time. One summer, one person, and a love that can’t last forever but is also big enough to follow you for the rest of your life. This zine follows a summer fling, an almost perfect one, but what aspect of the fling earned the title of almost? Fall in love with yourself, and the versions of these people who entered and then exited an almost perfect summer fling.

I am not a groundbreaking study: a medical erasure, 2023

 ‘I am not a groundbreaking study’ pulls from the book ‘The Lives of Transgender People’ by Genny Beemyn and Susan Rankin as it digs through the conversation about transgender people. Featuring blackout poetry and printer photography, this zine aims to explore the ways in which trans-ness is often pushed into the rigid structure of studies while being unwelcome there, and how even our own words can be twisted and turned (or sharpie-d over) to provide easy to chew narratives. A bittersweet and reckless proclamation that trans people not groundbreaking studies.

Fishbowl: A Collection of Differences, 2023

‘Fishbowl: A Collection of Differences’ is a view, warped by metaphors, into the inner workings of a neurodivergent, trans, queer, disabled, and so much more brain. Poems that dare to find that break in your precious glass ceiling, and runs its fingers along it. An empty fishbowl still with bubbles, a placeholder back cover that survived more edits than any piece of writing, and a blackout poem that changed the address written on a letter. Look through the bowl, and watch for the way it warps you too.

Mini Zines or One Page Zine project, 2023

During the summer of 2023, I decided to make a new one page zine at least once a week. Some cover the ‘stats’ of my week (1 door dashing boyfriend, 4 episodes of cannibal, 9 cats spotted), or metaphors and lessons born in conversations. Some explore ways I am trying to connect with my community, or just the fun silly little bits and jokes I am in love with. Currently, I have just under 30 mini zines.

Break, 2022

‘I think, we should, up’ A chapbook about taking a break, being broken and maybe breakups. With raindrop calmness, the poetry collected in this book kneads through the options, break your fast and start eating again, take a break and relax, break off and remove yourself from a unit. A vulnerable look at the experience of a first breakup and how complicated ends can be.

Is it a gay or asexual thing to doubt your ability to love?, 2020

A zine that explores the impact of never seeing the forms of love you want represented. Filled with crushes, childhood moments, the opinions of others, and all the uses of a bed.

Other, 2019

‘Other’ is the first ever zine that Lewis created. All the angsty trans poetry that someone who had only been out for a year could ever dream. In one beautiful package, this zine explores the way queer identities intersect, other people’s perceptions, and religious (specifically LDS) trauma.
