Welcome to shed resident: J. Cheyenne Hohman

Welcome our current shed resident, Cheyenne from Lexington, Kentucky. Cheyenne will be here until July 3, and is compiling interviews with folks who run zine libraries and archives for a zine that will become both a resource for existing zine libraries, and a guide for folks who are interested in starting one themselves. Cheyenne has a zine distro called Copy That! and has made several zines including Neckmonster, OllyOllyOxenFree, Ask First and Empower Your Sexy Self.
