Class Description: Zines—short for “magazines” or “fanzines”—are limited edition, do-it-yourself publications, often photocopied and distributed cheaply or for free. They can contain everything from artwork (including comics and collage) to poetry, recipes, autobiographical writing and political information. Zines are strongly connected to subcultures like punk and feminist movements, and offer a platform for self-expression to all kinds of people. In this workshop, we will view and discuss a wide selection of zines, then learn to make our own easily-reproduced, 8-page “mini-zines” from one piece of printer paper! Bring an open mind and an idea for something you want to share with the world.
