The front cover of Bindle Zine Winter 2024 issue, Wheel. It features artwork of a cartoon robot carrying a bindle.

Welcome to the second issue of Bindle! We’re so happy we get to share the creativity of Long Island.


Our second issue of Bindle features three art pieces by Ratgrrl, curator of Muñeca Arthouse, based in Patchogue, NY. Brian and Toby Ferrari collab on a melancholy piece about a tragedy from dawn of the 20th century. Megan O’Brien captures a frog, and Will Aiello wonders, what do we do? Fred Byrnes hits us with another two-fisted poem, and Corey Monaco continues the Coterminous saga. All that and your winter animal oracle! Don’t venture out without it!


Hey, send us your good stuff! We accept poetry, digital art, stories, editorials1, photographs and photographs of paintings, woodwork, whatever. Email it to [email protected].

You can get a real, paper copy of Bindle for free!

Remember paper? Remember holding something made of paper in one hand and reading while drinking a hot beverage in the other? Remember how paper feels and smells? Inks that could smear and pages that could dog-ear? Read it once, and it looks like you’ve read it. You could leave it on a seat in a public place and be assured that someone would take a look at it, too, before eventually going in the trash. It’s okay. It’s ephemeral but lasts forever in your head. Break the spine, mark it up with highlighters, make rude pencil drawings in the margins. It’s okay. It’s paper, and it’ll still convey the stories we write in it.

Get your copy by emailing your mailing address to [email protected]. It’s free! And we never sell nor share your address.
