  • Workshop: The Art of Zine-making

    Grab your paper, get your creative juices flowing, and join Egyptian-Filipino-American journalist and artist Malaka Gharib in this playfully reflective zine-making session. A zine, short for magazine, is a DIY publication with which writers and artists can share the stories, musings, art, and poems that make their hearts sing – all in an easy-to-make, compact volume. In between readings from her new graphic memoir, It Won’t Always Be Like This, Gharib will gently walk you through the art of zine-making, showcasing how one A4 sheet of paper is all that’s needed to give the world a glimpse into your story. No prior experience required.
