Zine Making and Distribution 101: Old School? New School? Why Not Both? with Pharoah Bolding

1:30-3:00 pm

🌈Rainbow Room🌈

So you’ve got your ideas at the ready and you wanna make your zine but you don’t know where to start. There’s so many ways to make and distribute your zines that it can all feel so daunting. The great thing is there is no wrong way to express yourself in zine form and get your work out there! In this workshop we’ll talk about old school and new school methods to create and distribute your zines, including old school and new school approaches to preparing and creating content, free to dirt-cheap programs for digital editing and printing, and the many avenues of distribution.
