Zines for Educators!

June 12, 2023

Join Booklyn on July 7, 8, and 9 for a 3-part series of zine workshops created specifically for educators. Zines for Educators will be held at Old Stone House in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, and is for educators working at any level and working with any group or institution.

This workshop will cover the history of zines, zine culture, zine design, and creation, and how to use zines in the classroom. Participants will explore how zines can facilitate project-based learning, social-emotional learning, and literacy. We will provide hands-on training to teachers on how to facilitate zine-making in their classrooms.

Participants are welcome to attend one, session or both. Each participant will produce their own zine examples to take with them and will receive a print copy of the Booklyn Education Manual to support their continued work in the classroom.

We hope to support the history and practice of zine creation in public school classrooms across New York City. If you are a public school educator, please inquire about discounted tuition.
