Lara Langer Cohen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. She started collecting zines, including trading zines and corresponding with Sarah Dyer, in the early 1990s. The collection consists of approximately 280 zine titles (some with multiple issues) collected by Cohen and several hundred pieces of correspondence addressed to her or to her zines, Runt and Oh Oh Cheri, dating from the 1990s. Acquired by the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture.

The collection consists of approximately 280 zine titles (some with multiple issues) collected by Cohen and several hundred pieces of correspondence addressed to her during the 1990s. The collection is arranged into two series: Zines and Correspondence. The zines have been divided into sub-series based on editorship by women, men, or both, and within each sub-series, alphabetized by title. The zines primarily focus on popular culture, opinion pieces, and music. Letters in the Correspondence Series are mostly addressed to "Lara" and "Runt," Cohen's zine, with standard mailing envelopes and self-made envelopes using re-purposed materials. The correspondence is arranged chronologically. Along with letters, the series includes postcards, greeting cards, flyers, photographs, and pamphlets. Most of the correspondence includes requests for zines or personal notes to Lara.
