Join this workshop to create your own fanzine with stories and words that evoke your senses, emotions, objects, etc. We’ll find inspiration through touch, taste, smell, hearing and looking as triggers for graphic representations of a character that identifies us. We will free ourselves from the structure of beginning, middle and end, to find our own voice.

Facilitated by illustrator Vicky Cuello and journalist and femiñeta’s editor, Flor Coll. No previous experience is required.

This workshop is part of the London Spanish Book & Zine Fair 2023. Read the full programme
