This workshop series will explore how marginalized voices tell their own stories through the do-it-yourself print medium of zines. Each workshop will focus on a particular format: comics/illustration, photography, and prose, and will highlight different approaches and strategies to issues of narration and representation.

Brought to you by Asian American Studies 105: Zines, Creativity, Community and the Center for Asian Pacific American Students (CAPAS). This series has been funded by the Campus Life Committee.
