Ladies of Logan, Learn All About Zine Making & Storytelling
Have you heard of the Logan Women Zine Collective Meet-Up? Perhaps not, as I had not. LWZC, as it is called, is a series of Informal Creative Sessions or "meet-ups", which explores how storytelling and making, particularly through "zines" and collaborative zine making can help women mitigate social isolation while expanding informal networks for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Women.

A "zine" is short for magazine or a small self-published work for small circulation. In these sessions, women learn about everything zine related, that is how to make different types, practice different techniques, how to share stories, read the zines and drink a cup of tea while doing so. From there you learn how to explore the medium of place "mapping" working on large sheets of paper and using a variety of materials to draw "Our Logan" as experienced by the women living in Logan.
There is a minimum age of 18 and over to attend and you need to live in Logan. The sessions are particularly focused on women who identify as Culturally and Linguistically Diverse; however, other women can attend.
The venue for these sessions is the Logan Central Library (Lounge Room), 26 Wilbur Street, Logan Central. Next event is scheduled for Saturday 13th April 2019 from 1.30 to 3.30pm. The event is free; however, attendees must register online.
