Inspired by Richard Ross’ visit to Bloomington the previous week and his workshop at the Ivy Tech Center for Lifelong Learning, participants and community members are invited to attend this Zine making workshop and put what they’ve learned from Ross into practice. 

For this workshop, participants need to bring a photo of a person that is meaningful to them or has changed their life in some way, and if possible, interview that person about their childhood or adolescence. If an interview is not possible, do not worry! Monster House Press will help you write a creative writing piece based on the photo provided. Bring the interview text and photo to the workshop, where each participant will create one or two pages to contribute to the community-wide Zine. 

The final Zine will be published and distributed in Bloomington by Monster House Press. This workshop will be held at Rhino’s Youth Center and is free and open to the public.
