About Outspokin' & Bookish

My name is Amanda Meeks (she/her/they/them) --- I am the queer artist, maker, and librarian behind Outspokin' & Bookish. Outspokin’ & Bookish is part pop-up feminist zine/art object collection and part playful, mobile maker space focused on print media in Tucson, AZ. The Outspokin’ & Bookish mission includes cultivating social connectedness, sense of belonging, celebration of difference, and pride of place through sharing DIY publishing and print media-making practices and tools via bicycle. I provide a pop-up zine library, workshops and facilitate creative exchanges. 

Through Patreon, I have designed offerings to support this work and build community around DIY publishing and Riso printing in Tucson at the same time!
