As part of the research process for my current ongoing project A Teenage Melodrama In Four Parts (a project centred around my teenage obsession with the Manic Street Preachers) I am looking for people to donate old Manics zines to me. I used to have quite a collection of them myself but ended up passing them on or selling them.
I am only looking to borrow them for a week or so and all zines will be properly referenced in my research. I’m based in Manchester so would be more than happy to meet you to collect (and perhaps even have a coffee and chat about your own relationship with the Manics as this forms another important part of my research!) but if that isn’t possible I will pay for postage.
I’m going to be asking for help from fellow Manics fans quite frequently over the next year, not only for help with research, but also for help with forming work such as in photo and video shoots. If you’d like any more information then please feel free to email me at mxoliviasparrow @ gmail.com Thanks! (And a big thanks to those whom I’ve already interviewed via email!)
