Calling teen writers, artists for Teen Zine
Teens between the ages of 12 and 18 who compose poetry, write short stories, etch cartoons or capture photographic images are invited to submit their works for publication in the 2010 Teen Zine, a Maricopa County Library District magazine that showcases original teen art and creative writing.
Deadline for submissions is Sept. 20, and up to three creative works per person may be submitted for evaluation.
Every district library is accepting entries. Entries can also be mailed to Maricopa County Library District, 2700 N. Central Ave., Suite 700, Phoenix 85004.
One of the arts submissions will be chosen for the Zine cover via website voting. Teens who want their art considered for the cover should designate their interest on their entry form.
Some short stories longer than the standard two-page submission will be accepted for web-only publication. Teens interested in submitting longer short stories should contact their local branch for details. Longer short stories should be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or saved on disk and mailed.
The 2010 Teen Zine will be published and circulated in district libraries and other county government facilities by December. Entries selected for the Zine will also appear on the library district's website.
