Exploring Our Inner Monsters: A Zine Workshop

Classes and Activities

A Zine Workshop For You and Your Art Buddy 

Often we talk about our interests and desires, but what if we took the time to discover our "inner monster." What does that monster eat and thrive off on? Ever wonder if someone else shares the same "monster"? Through guided writing prompts and dialogue, we will attempt to normalize our monsters and create from exploration. Each participant will make a mini zine by the end of the workshop.

Join us for a series of virtual programs that explore our relationships with the places, communities, and people we love, and how a variety of different creative practices can help us develop strength & self-love, and have fun making! The 6 months will culminate in making a community zine! Each workshop will include inspiration to get you started, but whether you join us for them or not, we invite you to submit a page at any time during the project by emailing a digital copy to or mailing your work to 318 SE Main Street, Suite 155 Portland, OR 97214. ** The final submission deadline is September 30th, 2021.
