Canzine Calgary is just around the corner! Join us this October 27th from 12pm-6pm in the Memorial Park Public Library for a day of zines, comics, chapbooks and DIY!
As part of Canzine Calgary, filling Station Magazine is thrilled to host From the Page to the Stage, an experiential workshop led by writer, performer, and facilitator Rita Bozi from 4:30pm – 5:30pm.
