In this workshop, Olivia will take you through the process of making an easy A4 zine. Come ready with a piece of your own writing (a poem, story, non-fiction, or notes) about a topic that you have a passion for: maybe a film, musician, hobby, personal experience or historical event. By the end of the session you will have a zine (or a mostly completed zine) on your chosen topic.
