We will be accepting submissions now until July 15 for our first issue of Between the Stacks, Decatur Library’s new teen zine!

The theme for this issue focuses on oceans, beaches, or marine life and aligns with our summer reading theme, Oceans of Possibilities. 

We will accept poems, short stories, essays, visual art, photography, and collages. The zine will be printed at the end of the summer and will be permanently available to view at the Decatur Library. There will be additional copies available to patrons while supplies last. All who submit will receive their own copy of the zine to keep.

To submit, please fill out the form here or email There is a maximum of 3 submissions per artist. Teens do not have to be Decatur Library patrons to participate.
