Teen Zine @ Broken Arrow Library

Feeling creative? Submit your work to Broken Arrow Library's Teen Zine, and then join us as we put it all together into an vintage-style Zine! What exactly IS a zine? We're glad you asked! A zine is a non-professionally created magazine that is self-published for very little money in small batches. Which means we're going to collage, copy, scan, and cut and paste (with scissors and glue!) to self-published glory. We're accepting submissions of all kinds; see the attachment for the submission form and more information.

Submissions will be accepted until July 24, 2015 at 6pm.

Submissions for use will be selected by teens at the "Make a Zine" program at the Broken Arrow Library on July 30th from 2-3pm.
