Submit Your Work to the CCLS Quaranzine!


Definition of Zine:

: a noncommercial often homemade or online publication usually devoted to specialized and often unconventional subject matter (from Merriam-Webster)

The Camden County Library System invites adults and children ages 9 and up in our community to contribute to our online Quaranzine, a special publication documenting this monumental and unique moment in time we now find ourselves in. Share your experience with COVID-19 and social distancing using the medium of your choice. Each issue of the CCLS Quaranzine will be featured on the library’s website.

Use the form below to submit your artwork, but be sure to read through the guidelines first!

Submission Guidelines

  1. It must be art. “Art” includes, but is not limited to:
    • Photography
    • Drawings and paintings (photographed or scanned, or created digitally)
    • Sculptures, dioramas, and other 3D media (submitted via photograph of course!)
    • Poetry, short stories and other creative writing (1000 words max)
    • Comics and cartoons
    • Mixed media
    • Recipes
  2. If it moves or includes sound we can’t include it, so no videos or music please.
  3. It must relate in some way to the COVID-19 crisis or social distancing measures.
  4. All work must be original. Please do NOT use copyrighted images or references.  If other people appear in your artwork, make sure you have received permission for their likeness to be published. Also, your work is still your own; the Library will not “own” it once it is published.
  5. Please keep it PG. All submissions are subject to the Library’s Code of Conduct. We reserve the right to not publish anything we deem inappropriate for a wide audience.
