Teen Memoir Zine Workshop

Event Start Date: 3/11/2021 4:00 PM

Event End Date: 3/11/2021 5:00 PM

Teens! Challenge yourself to create a memoir in just 6 words!

Take those words and turn them into a visual zine memoir with magazine clippings, glue, markers, stickers, and more. Afterwards, submit your zine to be included in our local memoir publication that will be added to the Leon County Public Library collection.

Submit your zine to: tinyurl.com/LCMemoirSubmission

Submission deadline is March 31, 2021

Check out examples of six word memoirs here: https://www.sixwordmemoirs.com/

For your zine, you will need:

  • half-page of paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • magazines
  • markers, crayons, pens, or pencils

Activity bags with the paper, glue, and magazines will be available for pick-up at any Leon County Public Library. If you don't have time to pick up an activity bag, use materials found around your house!
