Head Editor and Founder
Sam was born in the woods along the Northern New Jersey coast in an age of great Darkness: the Reagan years. Surviving the wicked times by eating cast offs from a local pizza shop, Mr. Cicero eventually came into the life of Glen and all was well. Lo-Fidelity came born of the fact that he had little to do during the summer. Since then, he has much less free time.

Fiction/Nonfiction Editor
Andrew Kaspereen detests people who think that writing with no punctuation is anything other than laziness. When asked about himself, Andrew will not shut up, but this quote of his sheds some light: "Once I accidentally ate a firefly that flew into my mouth whilst biting on a 'Nutragious' candy bar." He is from Northwest New Jersey, where plenty, joy, and a little bit of arson can always be in fresh supply. When he grows up, he wants to stop laughing at the word poop. He will be your friend forever unless your name is Glen Binger. If, in fact, your name is Glen Binger, see the first sentence of this biography.

Poetry Editor

Kiley "Keeks" Rummler is from Belmar The Best Place In The Entire World, New Jersey. She enjoys writing poetry but has been dabbling in fiction and non-fiction. She loves the beach, winter clothing (such as hats and scarves), macaroni and cheese, sushi, fall foliage, Sistaa and boys who wear bandana's. She hates lunch meat, the Dallas Cowboys and Sarah Palin.

Fiction/Nonfiction Editor
Glen enjoys Kona coffee and Wawa breakfast sandwiches. Preferably sausage biscuit. He hails from Central Jersey's shore line and attends one of the Garden State's finest college academic establishments. He repz Allenwood General Store's porkroll egg and cheese, canon photography equipment, long hair, lobster knife fights, double clicking the mouse and ride snowboards. His dislikes include mushrooms, Andrew Kaspereen, bennys, seagulls, The New York Ranger's entire franchise, small tubes of spermicidal lube and Florida.

Art Editor
Alex is another epic son the ragged New Jersey coastline, most recently sprawled across Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. He takes solace in large bodies of water, tumbled-down tenements, and long stretches of highway. Favorites include grapefruit juice, neon teal, and magnets.

Submission Guidelines


Lo-Fidelity accepts fiction, non-fiction and poetry of up to 4000 words. Photos and Art should be as large as possible. There is no limit on the amount of submissions per person, but remember to only send your best and most daring work. We're very open-minded people who are looking for quality, not quantity. Send work by e-mail. We review and try to get back to you as soon as possible.

Documents must be in .doc or .txt files.
Pictures/art must be in .jpeg or .tiff files.

Be sure to label everything. In the subject line please write your name. And make sure you include titles for all of your submissions. (Its okay to be untitled, but let us know.) Make sure you label clearly, too. Don't want to be giving titles to wrong pieces.


We do not currently pay contributors for their work. However, we do provide the author/artist with an advanced copy of the zine. (Due to limited amounts prints and money we can only currently offer one issue. But we're working on it.) And of course, exposure and our everlasting love/thankfulness.

Talk to us:

If you just want to send a shout out - we'd love to hear from you. Any thoughts at all. Good, bad, love, hate. Let us know what we can do. If you want some stickers don't be afraid to ask! We'll mail you some.


Don't drink soda. It's bad for you.


Welcome to Lo-Fidelity!

So, what was once in print is now online (much like the rest of the civilized world). So for our fans I have a few things I'd like to explain:

1. Thank you so much for submitting and giving us a lot of encouraging words

2. The reason why we haven't been making zines is complicated. Right before we were set to start the third (and greatest) issue I moved. Since I am a power hungry demon, I had all the stuff. Also, I had most of the printing things with me.
When we got to school, I was busier than I thought I'd be, as well as the rest of the crew.

3. So, we will be putting submissions up on here so that we can still showcase all the amazing submissions that we've gotten at this point. There will be a print zine later, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Again, thank you for being so patient with us. It's our first time.

Feel free to check out our MySpace and our Facebook Group as well!
