Zines for Teens

What is a Zine? A Zine (pronounced "zeen") is a handmade, handwritten publication of self expression made to print and share with others. We would love to see what you can create and also hear what is on your minds!  It can be about any subject you can think of, including but not limited to.....art, crafts, pets, travel, music, books, food, sports, and activism. The possibilities are endless!

How does this project connect to community service? We would love to start a Zine library in Teen'Scape but need your publications to begin our collection. A Zine library provides others in the community with original sources of material that document current pop culture. How fun is that?!

If you create and submit a Zine to Teen'Scape you will  receive 1.5 hours of community service. Can't wait to see your creations! If you have any questions please call us at 631-757-4200.
