Teen Zine

Teen Zine is the Huntley Area Public Library’s writers’ club for grades 6 – 12. Teen Zine is also the name of our group’s quarterly publication. If you like writing, photography, art, graphic design, and/or publishing, we would love your creative input!

Meetings: Teen Zine meets monthly in the library’s program room.  No need to register, just drop in.  Upcoming dates:
Friday, October 21, 2016, 4-5 p.m.
Friday, November 18, 2016, 4-5 p.m.

Submissions: You don’t have to be a member of the writers’ club in order to submit your work for consideration! We’re looking for your original short stories, poems, reviews (of books, movies, music, or video games), jokes, tips, true stories, essays, journalistic reporting, interviews, letters, photos, comics, drawings and/or other artwork. We accept submissions on an ongoing basis. You can open up/print a copy of our Teen Zine Submission Form, or submit your work directly by using the online submission form on this page.
