A-Zine (a-to-zine) is run by journalists Christina Karras and Ruby Staley.

Initially from very different ends of Melbourne, we met at RMIT University in 2017 while studying a Bachelor of Communications (Journalism). You could say it was friendship-at-first sight.

We quickly found the infinite number of things we had in common – from both being Gemini’s to talking a lot – we linked arms, and never looked back. Since then we’ve shared our feelings over coffee countless times, and written hundreds of articles.

a-zine is an online zine/blog/space for anything and everything...

art, fashion, music, culture, news and beauty.

For someone whose childhood dream was to be a fashion designer, my love for fashion, art and the creative world has weaved its way into my writing - which is not a bad compromise. Now, as a journalism student at 21, my pastimes include watching way too much reality TV, and dancing in the mirror. I also work for Fashion Journal Magazine, and the Herald Sun.

When I'm not trapped in the claws of social media and occupied by the trivialities of being a 21-year-old, I write in an attempt to make some sense of the world I live within by analysing events, art, people and information which peak my interest. You can find me chatting absolutely anyone’s ear off about said things.
I’ve interned and wrote some words for Fluff (@itsall.fluff) and Fashion Journal (@fashionjournal).
