Junk Drawer held the first ever Junk Drawer Workshop. It took place at CHIPRC, the Chicago Publishers Resource Center.
I talked a little about the history of the Junk Drawer zine.
Then we passed around a junk drawer stocked full of pre-selected odds & ends, and everybody found something of interest and wrote about it. People brought in their own junk drawer objects too, so there was a bit of writing about that. I showed a short video of a junk drawer exploration. Soon it was time for a game of Guess the Odds & Ends. It was a great workshop experience overall, and I look forward to doing one again. The writings will be compiled into a small zine and available through Junk Drawer, and at the CHIPRC. A special thanks to all who participated!
