Zine workshop coming to library on May 1
The library will sponsor a hands-on workshop on zines, Wednesday, May 1, from 1:30 – 3:30 pm on the main floor of the library. Participants will learn about the zine movement and have the opportunity to express themselves by creating a zine of their own design in a collaborative environment.
Zines are self-published mini-magazines printed in small numbers, typically made by hand and duplicated with a copy machine. Common topics include fan-fiction, art and design and personal journals or memoirs.
The workshop will offer insight into the publishing world and the facts about self-publishing, copyright and the reliability of information. Participants will look at their creations in the context of other zines and publications, the library collection and society in general.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Annie Gaines at firstname.lastname@example.org.
