Calling all zine makers!
posted July 26, 2019 12:03 PM   RSS

I was thinking it would be cool if a bunch of zine makers came together to chit chat, trade and or make zines. Anyone know a good venue in Manhattan? I was thinking of doing this next Thursday, I guess around 6 for people that work?

Not in Manhattan but I just learned about something also happening Thursday August 1st (from nonsense nyc):

Zine Layout Workshop

Learn about zine layout at Staten Island Makerspace NYC in the first of SIZL's August workshops. Bring yourself and your art, book, poetry, comic, whatever-you-want ideas. The Staten Island Zine League (SIZL) is a collaboration between artist Maggie Buford, MakerSpace NYC, and NYSAI Press to present regular zine workshops for local artists, writers, poets, and budding creatives in preparation for the zine fest SIZL 2019 -- coming to Staten Island's Makerspace NYC Park on September 15.

It sounds cool, but Staten Island is really out of the way for me.

Quimby’s NYC in Williamsburg is having an event TONIGHT.
Intro to Zine Making Workshop part two (Part one was last week)

July is International Zine Month!
Come celebrate with an Intro to Zine Making Workshop.

Ever wanted to make your own zine but aren’t sure where to start? Come down to Zine Making 101 at Quimbys hosted by Emma Karin from Pretty Dirty Press! (Radical Domesticity, Lost Lonely)

This workshop will cover the basics of zine formats, layouts, do’s & don’ts, and provide time to make a one-page zine of your very own!

This event is suggested $5 - $10 donation but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

I'm not a zine maker, but I am intrigued by this idea. (I can't go to Williamsburg tonight, though.)

Anyone still interested?

Me, potentially. And I was talking to someone (who was probably betweenthebars) recently who was also interested.
