Learn about the original DIY self-publishing format, its history, and different styles – and leave the workshop with a mini-zine of your own! Led by volunteers from the Denver Zine Library.

********** Sunday, 7/21 – Monthly writing club **********
We know that it’s sometimes hard to carve out time to sit down and write. On the 3rd Sunday of every month, the Denver Zine Library invites you to come and write with us. Bring your own laptop or we can provide the pens and paper.
If your writing turns into a zine, we’d love to house a copy of it in our collection! You can also work on journaling, writing letters, or bring a quiet craft.
Hope to see you there!
