Recap: Causing a Zine, The Sequel

On Sept 16, 2022 Kim Knight led a workshop on academic zine making. Participants gathered with tape, glue sticks, scissors, and their creativity to construct zines for the 3rd floor Little Free Zine Library in the Edith O’Donnell Arts and Technology Building.

Scans of the zines are coming soon, but for now we’ve got a photo of creativity in process and the handout that shared tutorials, inspiration, and academic work on the context and uses of zines.

Students of various races and genders sit around a table with an assortment of zine-making supplies. All students are wearing face masks.
