About the event

As part of the 2023 Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn Community Pride Center will host a Zine-Making Workshop in partnership with Booklyn, Inc.

Zines are handmade books. Typically, they are created by individuals, by hand, with basic materials–paper, scissors, pens, and ideas. Zine-making can facilitate the development of personal and community-based storytelling.

In this workshop educators from Booklyn, Inc. will teach the one-sheet bookmaking technique to develop a personal story into a handmade zine. Participants will also be invited to contribute to a collectively made book, using the flag book technique. This is a free workshop. No experience is necessary. Materials and tools will be provided.

Please complete and submit the workshop registration form so we have a better idea on how many people will join the workshop.

This workshop is made possible in part by funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in collaboration with the New York City Council.
