QuaranTEEN Zine Contributors must fill out a 2020-2021 School Year Teen Volunteer Application.
Available for volunteers entering grades 6-12.
QuaranTEEN Zine Contributors put their artistic abilities to work by submitting content for inclusion in the SCLSNJ’s QuaranTEEN Zine. A zine is a small, noncommercial publication created by self-selecting groups with shared interests. It typically contains writing and artwork.
Contributors are welcome to work in all media to create engaging sculptures, paintings, graphics, prints, photographs, drawings, sculptures, collages, textiles, and more, but must send us a simple image file. Contributor writing can take the form of poetry, short stories, and/or flash fiction, but should not be longer than one page. Fanfiction is welcome, but please abstain from sending us nonfiction, essays, or opinion pieces. Written pieces can not exceed one page.
The QuaranTEEN Zine will be updated every month, so volunteers must submit to the timesheet by 11:59 p.m. of the last day of the month in order to get credit for that month.
Training is at the discretion of the library branch’s Teen Volunteer Coordinators.
Volunteers will receive one hour of volunteer credit per piece; submissions are limited to four pieces per month. Volunteers must submit their contributions (e.g. photograph, document etc.) on the digital timesheet. Service time is awarded to appropriately completed submissions by local branches’ Teen Volunteer Coordinators.
