Creative Activity / Workshop


Zine-making for Personal & Community Storytelling (In-Person)

Zines are handmade books, typically created by individuals, by hand, with basic materials – paper, scissors, pens, and ideas. Zine-making can facilitate the development of personal and community-based storytelling. In this workshop educators from Booklyn, Inc. will teach the one-sheet bookmaking technique to develop a personal story into a handmade zine. Participants will also be invited to contribute to a collectively made book, using the flag book technique. This is a free workshop, no experience is necessary. For more information and questions, please contact Jako Douglas-Borren at 

Location: Brooklyn Community Pride Center – Crown Heights, 1561 Bedford Avenue, Suite Ground A, Brooklyn, NY 11225
