Livingston Literaries is accepting submissions for the second issue of our literary magazine (or “zine”),Think.


Combatting isolation through shared stories – and we would love your submissions!

What is Think?

Think is a publication created by youth for youth, featuring literature, artwork, and other creative pieces created by you!

We accept artwork and literary pieces, fiction or nonfiction, from local youth (Livingston and surrounding areas) ages 18 and under! All submissions must be previously unpublished.

What is the theme of the second issue?

The theme of this issue is Childhood

In our second issue of Think we are delving into the past. We thought childhood would be a fun theme that can be taken in lots of different directions. We all have different experiences in our childhood, and sometimes it’s good to look back at things (even if it only happened last week). 

What do you think of when you remember childhood?

Your work could be inspired by such experiences and emotions as…

  • Nostalgic memories
  • Formative experiences and defining moments of your life
  • Embarrassing/proud moments
  • Realizations about the world
  • Siblings
  • First time experiences

Don’t feel restricted to these ideas – they are mere suggestions!

    • Comics (recommended 1-2 pages)
    • Poems (up to 3 poems, not to exceed 5 pages total)
