Tell It Like It Tiz! senior zine comes alive on the web!

Hey Hey Hey, did you know that I do a zine with senior citizens called Tell It Like It Tiz?
I do. I have been conducting a Zine Group at a senior center called the Marie Smith Center almost every Friday for the past six years.
To be super specific, I do this sometimes alone, but usually with one or two other volunteers, most notably and regularly Marc Parker.

We sit at a table with several seniors and take notes or draw comics about our conversations, their life histories, advice & reviews, then we publish these conversations (alongside art by the seniors themselves) in Tell It Like It Tiz. The zine has been coming out regularly since 2007. We are currently working on our fourth issue, and hope to publish a book sometime next year.

Anyway, I'm telling you this so that
A) You know
B) You will visit and bookmark our newly minted Tumblr page:

Thank you and good night!
