How to Build a Lesbian Magazine – Zine Workshop

Rating: 15+


Join Artist and Writer Jo Kimber as they try to design, make and publish a magazine for the South-west, that dares to put the word lesbian on its front cover.

We’ll begin with a writing/ drawing exercise and then go straight into an editorial meeting, after which we’ll break out into groups to create content.

Taking inspiration from Curve Magazine, the workshop will interrogate identity, visibility, representation and the use of the word lesbian; working together to create* something that will be handed out at the end of the evening’s film screening.

This workshop is open to all people, regardless of gender and how they may identify.

No previous experience is necessary, this is a very hands-on and practical workshop and we’ll really want you to get involved.

Skill Level
Beginner. There will be a short writing/drawing/collage exercise at the beginning of the session (whichever you feel more comfortable with) and you don’t have to share with the group unless you want to.

Covid Safety
Participants will be encouraged to keep social distance and wear masks throughout the workshops. Hand sanitiser will be made available and participants will be encouraged to use it especially if using shared materials. A full risk assessment will be done before the workshop and facilitators will follow government guidance.

Venue Accessibility
Bricks is an accessible, step-free venue.

*All materials will be provided
