Cicada-Themed Virtual Zine Lab
Wednesday, May, 19th | 6:30-8:30pm

As always, you can come and work on your own thing at our zine lab and just hang out, but we’ve got something special planned, too!

Brood X cicadas are emerging in the DC area after 17 years in the ground. Please join us for a cicada-themed zine lab to celebrate. We’ll be hosting a mini presentation on them to inspire you, review how to make the 1-sheet/8-page zine, and then we can get to work on our creative manifestations! Recommended items: paper, scissors, markers, pencils, collage materials, glue. Sign up below to get the GoogleMeet link!


DC Zinefest is a one-day independent event designed to provide a space for zine-makers, self-published artists, and writers to share their work with each other and the Washington, D.C., community.
