DIY Zine Workshop for Teens Hosted by SF Zine Fest

DIY Zine Workshop for Teens Hosted by SF Zine Fest

Join San Francisco Zine Fest in this hands-on workshop as they lead us through several zine construction basics. A zine—short for “magazine”—is any self-published work with a circulation of about 100 copies or less. The form is open-ended, and can accommodate for any number of mediums, from comics to poetry to photography and many more, as long as that medium can be committed to paper. This is why zines have been a popular form of expression for marginalized and disenfranchised voices. 

SF Zine Fest is an annual celebration of the zine in the Bay Area. This year's fest will be on Sunday, September 1 at County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park. Founded in 2001, San Francisco Zine Fest seeks to advance the do-it-yourself ethos by fostering community throughout the Bay Area. In our annual festival and its accompanying panels and workshops, we celebrate and support independent writers, artists and creators, allowing them to share their work with an ever-growing audience in exhibitions and public events. San Francisco Zine Fest is a member of the Intersection Incubator, a program of Intersection for the Arts.
