Announcement    {♥ ♥ ♥ Please be mindful and read the full listing descriptions and Shop Announcement before placing an order or sending a message. Thank you! ♥ ♥ ♥}

Maranda Elizabeth is a writer, zinester, high school dropout, cane-user, sex worker, daydreamer, flâneux, and recovering alcoholic approaching a decade sober. They're also an identical twin, a witch, and a white agender sorta-femme. Maranda is the author of three novels, Ragdoll House (2013), We Are the Weirdos (2017), and Oliver A Lover All Over (2019), a non-fiction anthology of the first decade of their zines, Telegram: A Collection of 27 Issues (2012), of which they've now written forty-two issues, and the zines Little Acorns (a 24-hour zine) and Edith (fiction).

For two years, they wrote a column on LittleRedTarot.com, See the Cripple Dance, on re-imagining Tarot through disability and madness, and poverty and anti-capitalism. Currently, they offer Tarot readings for misfits and outcasts.

For many years previous, they've written online and in-print about recovery with borderline personality disorder, complex-trauma, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue, with an emphasis on politicizing illness and recovery, and understanding illness (mental, physical, and spiritual) as a debilitating and deadly consequence of capitalism, as well as a form of resistance and protest. They've also spent their entire adulthood writing about writing, creativity and friendship; disability and accessibility; witchcraft and Tarot; self-care, support, and $upport; queer mad poor crip lineages; and surviving social assistance and poverty.

Maranda grew up in Lindsay, Ontario (Ojibway, Chippewa, and Anishinabek land), and currently resides in Toronto, Ontario (traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and the Métis). Their work explores themes of loneliness, abandonment and disposability; synchronicity, joy, meaning-making, and memory; and the process of making a home of place and body.

They're a Libra Sun, Sagittarius Moon, and Gemini Rising, with Venus in Libra, Mercury in Scorpio, Aquarius Midheaven, and Chiron Retrograde in Gemini.


♥ Maranda Elizabeth also offers Tarot readings for weirdos, queerdos, misfits, outcasts, & crazy people! {Tarot readings are offered sporadically by chance, luck, & mood! So you might notice those listings appear & disappear & reappear. If they're not here when you are, be sure to check again another day!} ♥

♥ pronoun: they ♥

♥ Because of my concurrent disabilities, I can't go to the post office everyday, nor even every week sometimes. Zines & books will be mailed as soon as possible. Tarot readings will be sent within seven days of purchase. Be patient or go away. And, as always, gratitude & appreciation for those of you who support my writing, my magic, & my weirdnesses, and who understand the unpredictable nature of disability & craziness. Thank you! ♥

♥ ♥ ♥ And because this happens too often: PLEASE STOP ASKING ME FOR FREE STUFF. It's dismissive & disrespectful. If you prioritize mad & disabled artists, if you prioritize our art/work, PAY US. ♥ ♥ ♥

♥ ♥ ♥ More words at marandaelizabeth.com! ♥ ♥ ♥

If yr payin' by well-concealed cash or just wanna write a letter:
