Growing Up Half Ass[yrian] Zine


The much-anticipated zine is here! Okay, maybe you haven’t heard anything about it, but it is here.

We have compiled some of our favorite blog posts and created a zine about growing up half-Assyrian and half-white. We made some drawings with watercolors based on our childhood photos and rewrote the stories on our grandmother’s typewriter. It was a lot of work but we are so happy with the result!

If you are in the San Francisco area, come to the SF Zine Fest Saturday and Sunday 11am – 5pm.

We would like to thank our beautiful mother, Odette, for her olive inspiration, our Aunt Marlin for her always fun parties and stories, Julia for hide-and-go-seek, Larkin for her beauty, Pam for editing on such crazy short notice, Rachelle and Rochelle for the Assyrian writing help, and our friend Jeff from J & N Printing in Belmont for cutting our pages for free!!!

  1. Hello, Cindy SS told me about the “Half Ass-yrian” zine you wrote and I would love to read it! I am also half Assyrian and don’t know any other half Assyrian people. What a great title for the zine! I haven’t read it but have a feeling I will understand its content 🙂

    1. Wow thanks so much Christeen for your interest! And to hear from a fellow halfie! We actually have it here on etsy if you are interested. Thanks again for your interest!
