Here’s an option for something creative to do during your free time, that’s not for school or on the screen! Pleasure Boat Studio: A Nonprofit Literary Press, located here in West Seattle, will be putting out a Kids magazine or ‘zine’ to offer a shared space for free-form creativity for kids… a collection of kids‘ arts in this historical year of 2020, a place for kids to share with their peers. come up with your own themes or ideas for stories, poems, comics, haiku, jokes, art, photography, or photos of lego creations, etc. Or feel free to send in something you did for school or over summer, or in the past if you want to contribute but don’t feel like doing anything new. This isn’t meant to be fretted over, anything goes, messy or neat, silly or serious—it’s all accepted and acceptable. Originally, we were going to make two separate zines for elementary and middle school ages. However, they will be now combined, either into two sections or interwoven. This will be made into a vertical 8 x 10 downloadable PDF, with a link on Pleasureboatstudio.com, an ebook through itunes, B&N, and more, as well as a potential for a paperback version if there are enough pre-orders to pay for production.
