LETISIA CRUZ & HEATHER LANG
Last week we made the journey to New Jersey to visit our MFA alma matter, Fairleigh Dickinson University. We attended lectures, sat on a lit mag panel, and saw old friends. FDU is where the two of us met and where we fell in love with editing.
We graduated this century but while busy being nostalgic, the two of us thought a lot about the 90’s. It’s true. We’re 90’s fiends. In fact, one of us brought a trapper keeper to school. Hardcore, right? We know. Unfortunately, we did not have Lisa Frank stickers nor were we sporting JNCO jeans. We chatted, however, about Riot Grrrl, the iconic underground feminist punk rock movement. More specifically, we talked zines, those grungy DIY pamphlets that we'll always love.
We dedicate this issue to you, folks who miss (or missed out on) the 90’s. Dust off those Doc Martens and dig out that Walkman. You can’t deny it; we know you’ve kept them. Check the box with the embarrassing yearbooks that's somewhere in the back of your closet.
In honor of the 90’s, we offer you a zine-inspired issue. Welcome to Issue 38 of Petite Hound Press featuring flash fiction by Ingrid Taylor.
