“Fanzine Workshop”


This class we are makin’ a ‘zine!

The Edmonton Zine Fair 5 is coming up fast on Saturday, June 11 at the Sewing Machine Factory. And we’re going to release The History of Punk Fanzine #3 there!

But first we have to put it together. That’s what this class is for! Bring whatever you’d like to contribute, and classmate David Prodan will lead us in our “putting a zine together” workshop!

Ideas on contributions:
-a review of a local show, album, or visual art.
– an essay on something Edmonton or punk related.
– photos.
– poetry, prose, anything creative really.
– interviews, scene reports, the sky is the limit!

The class will start with a short lecture on the history of punk ‘zines, and then we will drive right into the workshop!

And yes, THERE WILL BE VEGAN SNACKS! Feel free to bring more to share!
