WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: What’s a zine? Who makes them, and how? “Zine” (pronounced “zeen”) is a broad, inclusive label for any kind of self-published booklets. Zines are a fun, powerful way for marginalized folx to take control of our own stories and start generating the content we want to see in the world. In this free, hands-on workshop for teens and adults, you will learn four easy-to-recreate zine structures, along with tips and tricks for tabling and selling at zinefests. If you come ready with ideas, you can leave with finished zines of your own. No experience or preregistration necessary!

INSTRUCTOR BIO: ELIJAH JANKA (he/him) is a lifelong artist and storyteller, and a big nerd who loves Dungeons & Dragons, comics, teriyaki, and folklore. He received an Associate of Fine Arts degree in Art (drawing and printmaking) from North Seattle College in 2018 and is thrilled to be back in his hometown of Edmonds.
