New Zine: Jodi Tilton, One of the Womyn the World Requires

26 June 2009

Jodi Zine CoverSo kids,

The zine Beth, Craig and I edited collecting writings about our friend, comrade, partner and constant companion Jodi Tilton titled “Jodi Tilton, One of the Womyn the World Requires: Collected Writings and Memories” has just been finished by Eberhardt Press here in Portland and I’ll be binding them this weekend.  This zine has been produced to mark the second anniversary of Jodi’s passing into the unknown and to mourn the immeasurable loss this has caused in our lives.

We have produced 100 hand-numbered copies which we will be sending to the Tilton family, zine libraries, radical archives, Jodi’s hometown and college library — and of course you all. I have saved a few copies of the “Cooking with Old Ma’ Tilton” cookbook and these will accompany the zine to the public archives. Additionally, we have placed a copy of the zine online as a PDF.

At 80 pages, containing a number of tributes from friends in addition to the biography of Jodi written for The Big She-Bang 2008, “One of the Womyn” is meant as a keepsake for Jodi’s friends and family as well as an example of radical, engaged and collective mourning.

Feel free to drop Craig, Beth and I a line at oneofthewomyn@warmachines.info for copies and to forward this message to other friends.

Much love,

Kevin Van Meter
