Submit to The Zine

Attention all creative teens: the Troy Public Library’s teen-run literary journal, The Zine, wants to publish your work! We are accepting all kinds of creative stuff, including visual art, poetry, short stories, blog entries, book/music/movie/video game reviews, comic, and more! Whatever inspires you, send our way.

All submissions should be sent to with some kind of contact information provided. All teens ages 13-18 are welcome to submit. Check out the digital version of the latest issue here.

There are no strict guidelines on content, but keep in mind that everything we publish is for a teen audience. Also, we have limited space, so any longish writing pieces should be fewer than 10 double spaced pages. We accept submissions all year long.

Happy creating!
