Our 2-session Zine Workshop will introduce students to the world of self-published fanzines motivated by the writers’ desire to share information, ideas, musings, etc. with a wide audience.  Whether it be political views, poetry and personal writing, food and music reviews, zines about school, friends, cats, family, health, feminism, race and racism, or anything in between, this workshop will give our students a look at the history and purpose of zines as well as the technical process of producing zines that have something crucial to say. Each student will create a zine and leave the workshop with a handful of copies to distribute.
