In bookmaking workshops led by Sasha Steensen, participants are encouraged to take a hands-on approach to literacy by creating their own publications. Participants learn about bookmaking tools and are given the opportunity to stitch their own binding and produce printed images to include in the book. Steensen’s press, “Bonfire Press,” has published seven broadsides and four chapbooks, including works by Graham Foust, Catherine Wagner, emeritus CSU professor Bill Tremblay and Claudia Keelan.

Keep an eye out for copies on display at the Center for Literacy Publishing and in the English Department display case in Eddy or visit Bonfire’s website at
