Katie Haegele grew up on the outskirts of Philadelphia and went to college at the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied linguistics. After graduation she began working as a journalist, starting out as the book section intern for the Philadelphia Weekly. These days she writes about books for the Philadelphia Inquirer, The Comics Journal, and other outlets, and her personal essays and reported articles have been published in the Utne Reader, Bitch magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, Adbusters, and few books. After a few years of working as a writer she began to miss linguistics, but found she didn’t really want to go back to school. So she started writing her zine The La-La Theory, a hodge-podge of language facts, oddities, and poems. Since then she has published dozens of zines, including White Elephants. At this point making zines — and being part of the worldwide zine community — is one of the most important things in her life.
