What is it?
This is a retreat for authors working on zines, cartoons, infographics, videos, animations, and other creative documentation of technical subject matter. It's a week to gather in person, learn from each other, and let fun collaborations and cross-pollinations bloom.
UPDATE: Tech Zines Retreat will NOT run in July 2023
We did not get enough reservations booked to meet our quorum to run this retreat for July 2023. Therefore, this retreat will not run. Guests who booked a reservation have been issued refunds. If we can get a group coordinated in the future, perhaps we can try again.
Why should I participate?
It's going to be super fun! You'll get to work on your projects, collaborate with brilliant creative people working on similar projects, visit a lovely wilderness area, make new friends, and enjoy a restorative retreat.
