Sweet Olive was a zine from Dublin, Ireland.

The author of Sweet Olive, Natalia, is American, and the content of the zine described her times in America and travels back to there. There are writings about travelling around Pittsburgh, Eugene in Oregon, and arriving in Dublin in Ireland. The second issue was an interviews issue called the ‘New Orleans Interviews.’

While in America, Natalia teamed up with the New Orleans zinesters Ammi Emergency, Ethan Clark, John Gerken and Willie Jones, who embarked on a zine tour of the east coast they called the Y'erd Me? Zine Tour. The selections from Sweet Olive read by Natalia on the tour were later reprinted in the compilation zine Y'erd Me?, which documented the participating zinesters and their writing.

After moving to Dublin, Natalia ran the Zine and alternative bookshop Red Ink Radical Books and Zines with Willie Jones in Dublin's Temple Bar. The shop lasted for two years and became a central outlet for selling zines in Dublin but had to close down due to escalating rent costs. Natalia now runs a zine and music distro in Leitrim with Willie Jones called Stitchy Press which is planning on publishing books and already has released a CD.
