"PRESENCE began as an idea for a mellow zine and a way to connect [with] people I was missing," Harris told The Creative Independent. "Many contributed something different than what they’re known for, while some shared a honed craft. An interview done by a musician, a story written by a filmmaker, etc. It's a mixed bag."
Check out a sample of PRESENCE issue one featuring Marisa Anderson in conversation with Ben Ratliff.
