Forest Fires Zine


20-page zine featuring writing by Margeaux Feldman and full-colour illustration by Wenting Li.

Anyone who has experienced losing a loved one will immediately recognize the visceral, sharp waves of feeling at the core of this personal essay about grief. For those who haven’t, here’s an opportunity to look out on this erratic sea with practical curiosity — because though death is a topic we should be inherently built to understand as mortals, it’s often the event we fear most.

From the story: “If your body was a piece of land, that space right under your breasts, that circle, would be the forest. And that emptiness that you feel marks the loss of so many trees now gone. If you’re doing the math, one man should equal one tree. But you’ve never been fond of math, you could never follow the formulas. He was one man, but he was also your world. He cared for you as a father would, provided you with the shelter you needed. But you cared for him, too. Helped feed him and bathe him before he turned fifty. Or maybe he was fifty. You try to do the math, but really: does it matter?” — Margeaux Feldman
