Longview Public Library in the Magazine Reading Room
Longview Public Library presents a “Make Your Own Zine” workshop series
Tuesday, February 7, 2023
In this hands-on workshop series, zine-maker Sarah “Shay” Mirk will share a giant pile of Zines as inspiration, then lead participants through the process of folding a Zine out of a sheet of paper. We will write and draw a Zine based on a fun prompt. No skills or tools necessary, just bring your desire to be creative.
Join us on Monday February 7, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. in the
Magazine Reading Room at the Longview Public Library for these fun filled creative workshops.
A Zine is a multi-page publication made for passion, not profit. It comes from the word
“Magazine” and is pronounced “zeen”. You can make Zines about anything, the creative format includes one sheet of paper, a pen, and your creativity. Visit the Washington State Archives to find inspiration for your Zine creation here: http://www.washingtoncenterforthebook.org/wszc/
