Zine Jam is for the people!

May 2, 2024

We believe that bookmaking is for the people. That’s why Zine Jam is a free zine-making workshop hosted by Booklyn, Inc. in public parks. No sign-ups, no age limits, no cost, no experience needed: just come over and we’ll get you started with a zine.

Come find us every Saturday in May in either Sunset Park or Maria Hernandez Park. Look for the red mobile bike and the ‘Make Zines’ banner. You’ll find Booklyn educators Jan Descartes, Mars Kruchinskaya, Sarah Lopez, and Mylo Mendez who will invite you to create a zine and enjoy the outdoors for a while. 

Exact park locations can be found within the links below. Come jam with us at these times:

Saturday, May 4, 1-4pm at Sunset Park

Saturday, May 11, 1-4pm at Sunset Park

Saturday, May 18, 1-4pm at Maria Hernandez Park

Saturday, May 25, 1-4pm at Maria Hernandez Park
