A workshop looking at the political history of Black women’s independent publishing in the UK from Claudia Jones’s “The West Indian Gazette” to modern collectives such as gal-dem. Beginning with a short presentation we’ll be looking at writings, illustrations and discussing the political and cultural significance of Black women’s independent publishing on the wider publishing world. Participants are welcome to bring their own work or the work of others for discussion. All races and genders are welcome but please be aware that this is an event that centres Black women and people of colour.

Get Your ticket here
For Glasgow Zine Fest events, we use a sliding scale ticketing system for all programming unless otherwise stated. You can choose to pay £2 to £4, £4 to £6, or £8 to £10 for all events, workshops and talks that require tickets.
Please be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who need it.

Talks and panel discussions will have BSL interpretation. BSL is available for workshops upon request please let us know before 1 April 2019.
