A pile of Teeth zines, black text on folded white paper.I have a new zine, Teeth, part of my long-running Story Zine series. This one is about class, being a kid, trauma, recovery and coping. Some bits are funny. A bit memoir, a bit therapy. Copies are free if you see me or 1p + postage from my online zine shop.

Charlotte’s Pool Map

Map of the UK with unusual swimming pool locationsI like to swim in interesting, historic and quirky pools, both indoors and out, but I don’t always know where to find them. I decided to research the kinds of pools I like in the UK and make a map of them, a small digital project. I thought this could be a resource to help me find cool places to swim, and that other people might also find it useful.

I have just published the first iteration of this map, which will likely be expanded in the future.
