Resist! Write! Create! Bookmaking for Young Authors

In this hands-on laboratory of words and images, you’ll explore the theme of resistance. We'll rewrite typical narratives into ones that reflect each of us. We’ll explore both individual and group identity, using our creative voices to tell stories of hope and justice. We’ll write (and rewrite) slogans, poems, short essays and stories and present them in our original chap books, flip books, pop-up books, accordion books, tunnel books and zines!
