Tell Your Own Story • Perzine Writing Workshop
February 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Everyone has a story to tell — make your voice heard at this interactive writing workshop! Through guided free-writing exercises, word mapping, collage, and word games, you’ll write and assemble an 8-page perzine. Perzines are handmade readables featuring personal memoir writing. Each participant will receive 3-copies of their newly-created zine, as well as a workshop-specific workbook.
This workshop has a $3 supply fee, and we are requesting a suggested donation of $5 – $20, pay what you can. All donations will go to support the Cherry Pit Collective and KC Zine Con. (For online payments, click the ticket link. Cash payments the day of the workshop will also be accepted. No one will be turned away for inability to pay.)
Cherry Pit Collective is a wheelchair- and mobility aid-accessible space located on the street level of 31st. All workshop activities are on the ground level of the Collective. Please be aware that the floor of the Collective transitions from smooth concrete to antique hardwood halfway within the space – there is an approximately 0.5″ drop between the concrete and wood. A workshop facilitator will be available if you need any assistance navigating this ledge.
