Make your own Zine and see your words in print in this two-part workshop featuring poet and writer Andrew Graves and print studio Dizzy Ink. In part one, you’ll work with Andrew to get inspiration for your poems through a selection of exercises and look at how to develop and polish them ready for publication in your Zine.

In part two, it’s time to get Zine-making! Having had time to develop your poetry, you’ll work with Dizzy Ink to create an anthology of everyone’s poems using Dizzy’s specialist printing process Risograph. Through group and individual activities, you’ll learn how to work with image and layout as you design and edit your publication. You’ll walk away with copies of your publications so you can showcase and share what you’ve created, and the work will also contribute to the Zines touring exhibition.

Book now and turn your ideas into ink.


What is a Zine?

Zines are self-made and self-published magazines. They’re motivated by freedom of expression rather than profit, and are created using various techniques such as collage, drawing and writing. Often photocopied and hand stapled, their DIY aesthetic and self-directed content makes them an empowering and democratic medium.
