Fiction Addiction Club's Zine Making

Reading club create magazine at local library 

On Friday ​20th April, Leeds West Academy’s book club, Fiction Addiction, attended a Zine making workshop at Farsley Library.

The session involved using images from the library to create a multi-media collage magazine based on the students’ favourite titles from the Leeds Book Awards shortlist.

The workshop was a brilliant opportunity for the students, who meet weekly to read together, to discuss book topics and put their creative ideas onto paper.

Ms Walker said: “The Zines they made were fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed a morning of creativity and celebrating books.”

The group are looking forward to attending the Leeds Book Awards ceremony on Thursday 17th May at Leeds Civic Hall. Students will have the opportunity to meet the shortlisted authors, submit questions to ask them on stage and hear the winner of the award announced.
