Talented peer and friend Choirstaidh McArthur established her company Peaches Publishing in late 2018 and it has been growing from strength to strength ever since. Peaches Publishing is a Glasgow based zine publishing company and media platform which celebrated multidisciplinary art forms created by a diverse group of creatives. It aims to raise up the voices of self-identifying women and LQTBQA+ people while rejecting, analysing and celebrating femininity and all it’s facets.
I was therefore thrilled when Choirstaidh asked me to submit work to the peaches punnet and contribute to her series of collaborative artist zines. My submission was a combination of poems and paintings exploring themes of bodily politics, sex, love and feminism which Choirstaidh then digitally edited to create a cohesive artist zine. The final outcome was better than I ever could have expected! All of the Peaches items including a version of this zine are available to buy from the Peaches Publishing Punnet Etsy Page
