As Elissa grows older, her personal zine, Hope, takes on many different forms, including an outlet for her creative writing (fiction and poems, especially haiku) and a place to vent her feelings on her father's suicide, Bard college, her brain tumor, politics (race, gender, and class), zine culture, and the experience of being hit by a car. Early issues are themed, but not all writing is related to the theme. Hope is also deeply connected to place, and as Elissa moves again and again, the details of each new town are related to her experience there. Some issues focus on her friendship and relationship with Lauren Martin of You Might as Well Live, one on her work on guerilla art projects in Brooklyn, New York, and others still on her experience as a graduate student in an MBA program. In issue twelve, 20-year-old Elissa considers bad writing, discusses the zine library she started at Bard with Lauren, shares a list of jobs that she's held, a series of haikus, and feeling unsafe in the city.
