Calling all zine makers, creatives, writers, and artists! We want you to join Teen Zine Team!
What is a zine? A zine is a self-published magazine that comes in any shape and size and can be about any topic. Did you know The City Library has a large collection of zines that you can check out? Visit the Main Library to browse this great, eclectic, and interesting collection.
The Teen Lounge on Level 2 of the Main Library also has its own Teen Zine wall. All of the zines you’ll find on this wall are made by teens and are free to take! No checkout necessary.
If you want to learn more about this awesome form of alternative press, we would love to have you join us at Teen Zine Team.
Teen Zine Team is a weekly meetup with Grid Zine Fest and The City Library where you can explore your creativity by working on individual zines, collaborative projects, bookbinding, and more. No experience needed! If you’re brand new to zines, we’ll show you how to get started.
In the past, Teen Zine Team members have attended events such as Grid Zine Fest’s summer zine swap and picnic, Alt Press Fest’s writing and zine-making workshops, and we table together at local zine festivals.
Teen Zine Team is held on Thursdays from 4-5pm on Zoom until we can meet in person again. If you don’t have zine making supplies at home, sign up here for your own zine-making kit.
We hope to see you there!
