Make your own poetry zine: workshop

MAKE YOUR OWN POETRY ZINE WORKSHOP
TOLLCROSS COMMUNITY CENTRE
TUESDAY 15TH MARCH
5pm — 7pm
A MERE £3 PER PERSON!

Calling all poets!

Come and learn about the awesome art of zine-making: find out a bit about zine culture, read some classic fanzines, and use our resources to create your very own zine — a compendium of your own work that you can give to friends, sell at readings or turn into a series.

You’ll need to bring:

* yourself
* at least one of your poems (printed/typed/handwritten/whatever)
* enthusiasm
* OPTIONAL: stuff to decorate your zine — anything 2D that will stick to a bit of paper. Photos, drawings, newspaper clippings, locks of hair, random scribblings, stickers, ticket stubs –anything that inspires you. We will supply a whole array of this stuff too, but the more you bring, the more original and personal your zine will be!

Come along and meet fellow poets and zine enthusiasts, use our resources and create something cool! All we ask is that you bring along three shiny pounds — this will cover the cost of making copies of your zine for you to take away!

Claire Askew is the Editor in Chief of Read This, a literary zine founded in 2007, based in Edinburgh and printed with assistance from the Forest Free Press. Read This has to date produced twenty issues showcasing the best in poetry, prose and drama from brand new writers worldwide. The zine is due to re-launch soon after a year-long hiatus. Claire is currently reading a PhD in Creative Writing and Contemporary Scottish Poetry at the University of Edinburgh and lectures in Literature and Communication at Edinburgh’s Telford College. Her poetry has been published by The Guardian, Poetry Scotland and The Edinburgh Review, among others, and she also runs the writing blog onenightstanzas.com.
