All levels of experience welcome!

Words is teaming up with the Forest City Zine Fiends to host our first ever zine-making workshop, “The Wordsfest Zine Jam,” featuring local musician and zine artist Jillian Clair as well as cartoonist and zine maker Sammy Orlowski! We invite anyone to join us for a workshop on zine making where you can craft your own contribution to the WordsFest Zine!

Zines are often short, DIY (“Do it yourself”), self-published books or magazines. They often have an organizing theme, involve collaborative practice with other creators, and include a multimedia collage of images and writing. The WordsFest Zine will have the theme of of the festival this year, “Crisis, Creativity & Care,” and will collect your contributions to create a collaborative zine!
