We’re so excited to announce our upcoming workshops!

A SERIES FOR TEEN WRITERS in partnership with the Bethlehem Area Public Library!
This three part series is open to high school students of any gender. All three workshops will be held in the Laros Room at the Bethlehem Area Public Library with facilitator and local librarian Jasmine Woodson. The second will be co-facilitated with Corrin Magditch, co-founder of LV Zine Fest. Participants may attend one, two, or all three of the workshops. The cost for each workshop is a suggested donation of $5.

• 1) WRITING! Saturday, June 22nd | 2:00-4:00PM
Are you a high school student with a passion for poetry? Do you have a story inside you that you want to share with others? Or maybe you’d just like to learn how to be a more expressive writer! Join our workshop to cultivate your art with a community of writers. We will read and discuss short works, receive prompts to help generate new work, and share work with other writers. Feel free to come with a draft you want to develop, or to use the workshop to create new work.

• 2) ZINES & CHAPBOOKS! Saturday, June 29th | 2:00-4:00PM
In this workshop, learn how to publish your own work through zines and chapbooks! Workshop participants will get an overview of zine history and construction. Materials will be provided-- just bring a finished work to turn into physical form.

• 3) READING EVENT! Saturday, July 6th | 2:00-4:00PM
Whether you’re a spoken word artist, memoirist, fiction writer, or slam poet, this reading event is a chance for you to share your work with from other local writers in a safe space. Bring a finished work or a work-in-progress, an open heart and mind, and enthusiasm!

All participants will have the option to display physical copies of their finished work for the public at LV Zine Fest on Saturday, July 13th! You can choose to share a complete zine or just an excerpt and it can be anonymous or signed. It’s your choice!
