Charlotte Cooper is a writer, activist and zinester from the UK.

Charlotte Cooper is the editor of a number of zines. Her first zine was a collaboration with boyfriend Simon Murphy, himself the writer of the zines Girly (1997-2000, 8 issues), and Adventure In Bereznik (1984-1989, 9 issues). The two produced the comic zine All Right. Two issues were published around 1990-1.

Her next zine was Kink. This free zine was described on the front cover as a "queer grrrl sex zine". It contained Cooper's writing, either as articles, critiques, or more personal writing; also included were interviews, pranks and comics. The zine ran for ten issues.

As well, she has made eighteen one shot zines. All titles consist of one word, and they are; Beefer, Dad, Dead, Dumb, Found, Fuck, Junk, Love, Norge, Nut, Scott, Sing, Spa, Spice, Stratford, Versace, Village and Womyn. The title Village made its way into Jason Barker's 1999 film Subterranean Homesick Blues.

She has also collaborated with girlfriend Kay on the minizine Cakey. As well, she released the comic zine Best Friends.

Charlotte has contributed to a number of zines, including Fat Girl, GirlFrenzy and Bite Size. She has also written for a number of magazines, including Diva, On Our Backs, Cheap Date, The Skinny and others. Cooper is the author of two books. One of these books, Cherry, has the distinction of being impounded at the border by Canadian Customs and temporarily banned in Canada.
