Well, that definitely goes down in history as one of my favorite events! Thank you so much to Elly Blue and Joe Biel, Ruby the second most awesome dog ever, and everyone else who attended!
First, Elly and Joe helped us make a list of everything that makes us angry (it was long…)
Then we talked about what zines are and how they can help us express that anger…
We looked at some examples of zines…before we made our own!
Thanks again for a wonderful night! Elly, Joe, and Ruby, come back soon!
Open to high school students and recent grads only. Registration required, register here.

What pisses you off? What do you want to say about it? Zines give voice to the silenced and publicize stories that the mainstream media refuses to cover. By taking their rage to the page, zinesters not only find a way to articulate their perspective but also share their vision with the world.
On Tuesday, September 2nd, the Zine aficionados from Microcosm Publishing in Portland will teach you how to turn the issues you care about into a powerful tool for social change. Or, you can just learn how to use zines to tell a really good story. Take a look at the awesome time we had with Microcosm Publishing last year.
All participants who register will leave with a blank book to start their zine-making endeavors as well as the Microcosm Zine of their choice.
Don’t know what a zine is? Check out this lovely little film by Jacob Carroll: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vExSlbOjiv4
