Queer Zine Making Workshop (Central Square)

Queer Zine Making Workshop (Central Square) In-Person

In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn what exactly a zine is (spoiler: it's basically any kind of independently made small book or booklet, usually photocopied and bound by folding or stapling—though not always!). Then, you will learn how to make your very own, very queer zine!

To get some context, we will take a brief look at the history of zines, as well as the present-day zine scene. Then you will learn how to fold one sheet of paper into an eight page zine that is easy to make copies of for distribution.

We'll also explore and brainstorm various ways that you can get your zine to the people in the world who are interested in reading, viewing, studying, and/or adoring it (these people exist!). Some methods include using the internet, giving them out/selling them at events, circulating them via zine libraries, and more. Lastly, we'll investigate the ever-uncomfortable question, "How do I set a price for my creation?" We'll delve into how you can figure out what feels right to you in terms of pricing, sliding scale options, or distributing your zine for free.
