To kick-off our new Zinester Camp: Paper Trail, we invite all interested young writers, artists, and zine fans to join us on Saturday, March 28th from 2:30-4pm for a preview of the exciting work we will be doing together each week in the Paper Trail Zinester Camp. 

Saturday's workshop is completely free and open to all, no pre-registration is required. If you would like to pre-register online for the 8 week camp you may do so here or you can register in person on March 28th.  

About Paper Trail Zinester Camp:

For nearly twenty years, Charis Circle, in conjunction with Charis Books and More, the south's oldest independent feminist book store has provided a forum for free thought, independent voices, and unique expression. Similarly, Murmur provides community resources for independent creative projects. Both groups under stand the need to bridge talent, skills, and information amongst community groups. As such we announce a new, collaborative zinester camp for youth, called Paper Trail. Borne out of the Zinester Writers' Group, this camp is offered to youth who pre-enroll online or in person at the free kick -off work shop at Charis on Saturday, March 28th from 2:30 - 4. 

Enrollment costs $55 and covers all supplies and printing. For 8 weeks starting April 14th, attendees will work with local artists and writers to create their own zines and hone their DIY practice.

Facilitators include Katherine Paist,(Hypoglogia and Ghost Culture) Kat Nelson, Brooke Hatfield (Flannery O'Connor Portrait Zine), Sinoun Chea (Anatomic Air Press), Judith Jones (Tom Girl), Amy McDaniel, (Real Pants,421Atlanta) Josh Feigert (State Laughter),Laura Relyea (Vouched Book s), Elizabeth Anderson (Charis Circle) and Amanda Mills (Murmur, Atlanta Zine Fest). "I really liked the safe space and how intimate our groups were. It really helped me develop my work more and give me better ideas for the future,” affirmed Zelda, a frequent teen participant in our Zinester Writer s' Group. As a weekly camp, Paper Trail will facilitate deeper work, encouraging experimentation and collaboration amongst participants. Skills acquired include an under standing of DIY aesthetics, emphasizing text through design and layout, familiarity with zine culture, practice discussing one's own work and verbalizing feedback for others, and experience in planning a zine exhibit and discussion panel.  

This program is funded in part by the Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs.

"Things We Don't Talk About: Women's Stories From The Red Tent" a film screening and discussion with Isadora Leidenfrost at The First Existentialist Congregation

"Things We Don’t Talk About: Woman’s Stories from the Red Tent" is a groundbreaking 72-minute documentary film by award winning filmmaker Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost, PhD. Spontaneous and organic, a Red Tent is a red textile space where women gather to rest, renew, and often share deep and powerful stories about their lives. The Red Tent movement is changing the way that women interact and support each other by providing a place that honors and celebrates women, and by enabling open conversations about the things that women don’t want to talk about in other venues. Things We Don’t Talk About weaves together healing narratives from inside the Red Tent to shine a spotlight on this vital, emergent women’s tradition. The film provides us an opportunity to remember, to listen, to know, and to find what it is we need to bring back to our communities to help awaken the voices of women.
