I thought I might pass this on if you know any young people in Portland this summer they should check this out:
Zine Camp 2009!
Each summer, the IPRC hosts a group of youngsters for five sessions of day camp. During camp, the participants learn the how’s and whys of self-publishing, the history of zine making and technical skills in print arts and independent publishing. Each camper will make their own zine, meet real live zinesters, participate in a zine reading and attend the 9th annual Portland Zine Symposium as tablers.
The camp is located downtown at the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) in downtown Portland. There are two camps this year; Uncensored Youth and Zine Teens. The Teens group will meet from 12-4pm on Tuesdays and Fridays July 7th through the 24th, and the Youth will meet from 11-3 July 20th thru the 24th. The cost of camp is $125 with scholarships available.
