This project explores the process of collaborative writing and collective expression of the pandemic through a feminist lens. In six weekly two-hour long collaborative virtual workshops with five people (including myself), we worked together to creatively express our experiences from the last two years. During the workshops, I acted as facilitator and program manager of the group, keeping us on track to maintain a collaborative feminist mindset and compiling our work to create our collective zine, Choral Work. My guiding questions were: What can these co-authors learn when they become this collective? How can this zine serve as a pedagogical tool during this process? I documented this process through journaling and art-making. Combining those creative practices with autoethnographic writing, this project-paper serves as an example of how zines are a feminist praxis and the importance of collaborative art-making as a tool for knowledge mobilization.
