Zine-Stravaganza - October 27 2018

from 45.00

Writing, cutting, pasting, folding, scribbling, drawing, stickering, — zine-ing! It’s like craft time in kindergarten, except all-grown-up with a radical bent. Get your independent publishing on in this super fun three-hour workshop.

Registration Level:

How does a day of creative magic sound to you? You bring your ideas, I'll bring the paper and pens (and magazines and books and markers and stamps and scissors and the typewriter and awesome zine examples and and and...) We'll start the afternoon by looking at zines and learning about this fun and freeing medium. We'll do a few quick writing prompts to get the creative juices flowing and give you some words to work with, should you so choose to include them. Then we'll spend the rest of our time together cutting, pasting, stamping and laughing. As always, you can also expect delicious baked goods and tea! 

You'll come away from this workshop with:

  • Your very own mini-zine, ready for photocopying and scattering about town. 
  • A handout filled with fun prompts and info on how to keep the zine train rolling at home. 
  • Meaningful connections with other creative types. 
  • A skip in your step and zine-dreams in your head. 

This workshop is appropriate for writers and zine-sters of all genres and experience levels, from bestselling mystery novelists to napkin poetry scribblers. You'll have the freedom to make whatever sort of zine you please -- journals, grocery lists and manifestos are always welcome. 

This is a brand new workshop, but you can check out love letters from past participants of other workshops here.
