How to Handle... is a 4-page satirical essay by an unknown author.

It is undated, but likely written in the early to mid 1990s.

It is unknown if it was distributed without an author or date on purpose. It is also unknown if it was part of a zine.

The tone of the essay is very bitter, and it takes the form of "anti-how-to" instruction.


The essay has four parts:

  • How to Handle a Zine Editor: A Guide for Submitting Your Pride and Joy
  • How to Order a Zine
  • How to Handle an Artist: An Editor's Guide to Deal with People Who Think They Can Draw
  • How to Handle a Writer: An Editor's Guide for Dealing with People Who Think They Know How to Write
