Guide to Being Alone

Guide to Being Alone is a zine released by Vice Versa Press in October 2012 and written by Julia Arredondo.

Vice Versa Press is an independent printing and publishing entity.

Guide to Being Alone is a how-to zine exploring the basics of maintaining a positive attitude while possibly being on the outs about solitude.

Points covered in this zine include:

  • Dealing with being newly single
  • Realizing that your friends suck
  • Realizing that everyone sucks
  • Being at home alone
  • Being in public alone
  • Traveling alone


Guide to Being Alone is an 8.5" x 7" black and white zine with a color cover. The zine has been printed on demand for the past three years, and the degeneration of the original graphics can be observed with each printing. A soundtrack accompanies the zine which corresponds to each page topic.
