When Swinging Next to You... is a perzine about relationships and high school. In Issue 1, 17-year-old Lazy Jane tells a story about the first snow, shares her experiences with meeting new people, having guy friends, gay science, being vegetarian at Thanksgiving, and seeing shows. Issue 2 discusses a friend moving away, being threatened in school, and recommended zines. In issue 6, Lazy Jane is accepted into a college art program and her boyfriend cheats on her. The text is comprised of handwritten and typewritten journal entries, lists and poems and is accompanied by ads, illustrations, photographs, computer clip art and stamp prints.
