Ballarat Writers zine workshop

I’m heading back to the old home town for three consecutive weekends to run a zinemaking workshop on behalf of The Ballarat Writers Centre. The workshop will take place on Saturday mornings from 10-12 on the 22nd and 29th of May and the 5th of June. It’s all happening at the Ballarat Learning Exchange in Camp Street – number 36 Camp Street to be precise.

It’s rare to get six whole hours to run one of these workshops, so if you’re or someone you know is in the Ballarat area and you or they’d be interested in some lazy saturday morning zinemaking, then come along. Even if you can’t make all three workshops, you’re more than welcome to just show up for one or two.

We’ll be doing a bunch of writing, drawing some comics, reviewing other peoples’ zines, cutting up old books and magazines and (fingers crossed) even doing some actual live real honest-to-goodness photocopying.

Plus it’s free.

  1. Oooh…fun times! Enjoy!

    Have you read the Newspaper Blackout poems by Austin Kleon? If I were teaching/leading a workshop, this would be a super fun book to show…

With his new IMPENETRABLE GREY GOLEM ARMOUR in place, thanks to his SUPERCHARGED EMERALD SWAMP-SPEAR, the malevolent muck-menace swirls his FOUR-BOULDER BOLO FIST overhead as he commands the very rocks and stones of the planet Wor to go forth and conquer!" #warlordsofwor #bognar "Just in time for the 5th anniversary of Warlords of Wor, here comes CLASSIC SWAMP ATTACK BOG-NAR! With his FOUR-FISTED SLIMEPACK mounted on his back and his MYSTICAL MUCK-SPEAR, the King of All Bogs has never been a more ominous opponent!" we got a terrarium at work! #bognar #warlordsofwor #terrarium "This year, as part of the fifth anniversary of Warlords of Wor, conquer the barren taiga of the planet Wor with new ICE-ATTACK BOG-NAR.
