"In 'Telegram: A Collection of 27 Issues', Maranda tells tales of daily adventures, friendship, gender identity, falling in love with bicycles, getting tattoos, moving out, going crazy, and their experiences with inpatient hospitalizations. They also write about their relationship with their twin sister, and learning how to take care of their mental health within and without conventional institutions, identifying as genderqueer, getting sober, living a creative and meaningful daily life, and finding reasons to keep on going."

Maranda is a zinester, writer, and daydreamer, and self-identified weirdo and genderqueer. Maranda began writing their zine, Telegram, as a way to connect with others when they were feeling shy and isolated in their hometown of Lindsay, Ontario. They wrote messages of encouragement alongside tales of depression and anxiety, and traded zines through snail mail. With each zine Maranda made, they learned to become more honest and open, began making friends by photocopying thoughts and feelings and confessions, and found that writing and sharing would be crucial to their survival. Maranda especially loves writing about mental health, self-care, and creativity, sending letters to friends and strangers, and sharing ridiculously personal stories. They currently reside in Guelph, Ontario.

'Telegram: A Collection of 27 Issues' also includes a bunch of new material, a tutorial on how to make zines, and a never before released issue.

“Telegram is the kind of zine that made me want to start writing zines in the first place. They write about their personal experiences with enough distance and care that they become not purging, but rather small maps that can help us to look at our own lives and the beauty of how we survive and become more fully the people we want to become.”
– Cindy Crabb, Doris zine, http://dorisdorisdoris.com/

    Reading this feels like holding a history that is for all us freaky gay crazy loners. I really respect the way Miranda put together all their zines and shared the narrative that wove through them over a long period of time. It illustrates survival that is nourishing in the way it’s shared; as zines are at their best! It feels so inspiring, and makes me feel pride where embarrassment use to be about the zines that don’t quite speak to where I’m at now.. cause that shits important! The way they write about their experiences do more than resonate they illuminate the value in sharing your own also. 💜
