Due to The Center’s cancellation of all groups, meetings, and events from March 16 through March 31 (full statement here), we will reschedule this workshop. Please check back for updates.


In this 4-session workshop we will read and analyze zines by queer and trans and queer writers to learn ways in which these authors explore their bodies, gender, and self-image through the creation of personal zines. These zines will help give us inspiration and directions for thinking about our own writing in the zine format. This workshop is an opportunity to build community with trans and queer writers and poets while also building a better understanding of one’s self through the creation of your own per-zine.

Over our four sessions we will create our own per-zines and share these zines with a reading at the end of our last session. The workshop will meet at the Bureau on:

Saturday, March 14, 11 AM to 1 PM

Saturday, March 21, 11 AM to 1 PM

Saturday, March 28, 11 AM to 1 PM

Saturday, April 4, 11 AM to 1 PM

This workshop is entirely free. You’re welcome to bring your own materials but materials will be provided as well as copies of zines for that will be used in our discussions.
