Monthly Pop-Up Series
Each month, Maamoul Press offers a drop-in stye pop-up workshop and book/print shop. The Pop-Up is free and open to the public, with no experience necessary, and the location and project changes each month. Join us to hang out, make some art, buy/sell/trade zines, and build community!

Drawing for Writers
Room Project, 6513 Woodward Ave., Detroit, MI

Drawing materials, pre-folded blank zines, scrap paper, collage and zine-making materials provided. Example zines along with their associated pieces of writing will be available to help guide participants. Just bring a piece of original or found writing!

Book + Print Fest
Arab American National Museum, 13624 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, MI
Drop by our table throughout the day at the AANM Book + Print Fest to participate in a collaborative comic, and join us for a special panel:
Fake-Woke: Refining Representation
As comics creators from minority and international backgrounds, we face a lot of tired stereotypes and preconceptions, institutional and otherwise, around what our stories should look like and whether they’re given a shot - despite “diversity” efforts. Drawing from industry experience, this panel breaks down efforts to transcend what is projected onto us, highlighting movements to reclaim our narratives and shape their future.
Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020, 2-5 p.m.
