    HTML Zine Club is a workshop making a personal-scope of web publication. Webzines, like print zines, are personal, story-based publications, but can also be made interactive and nonlinear through code, using basic programming languages such as HTML, CSS, and a bit of JavaScript (if you like!). In this workshop, an artist Nami Kim will lead participants who have little to no coding experience on how to craft their own webzines, centred around programming with care. Viewing the web browser as a free canvas and unraveling one’s own personal elements in it, the workshop can be an opportunity to diagnose a prevalent digital design aesthetics, as well as a concept like ‘’you learn code to get a job’.

    There will be a HTML & CSS skill-sharing session by Nami King, followed by a guided DIY webzine-making session. Participants are encouraged to bring personal writings, pictures, or audio files that they may want to incorporate in their work. For examples on webzines and how they can look like (there are countless ways, and no wrong answers), please visit this link: https://htmlzineclub.usersentimentalexperience.net/htmlzineclub/

    If you'd like to explore making hand-coded webzines with your small, but powerful stories, please join the program!

    Nami Kim is a web publisher and a lecturer who explores the relation between amateur coding culture and user experience discourse.
