Livingston Literaries presents a new literary magazine (or “zine”) called Think.
Combatting isolation through shared stories – and we would love your submissions!
What is Think?
Think is a publication created by teens for teens, featuring literature, artwork, and other creative pieces created by you!
This zine is a place where you can freely express the way isolation has affected 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 All submissions must be previously unpublished.
The submission deadline is April 15.
What is the theme?
The theme of our first issue is Isolation.
The pandemic greatly influenced our theme choice. It was a time we all felt isolated, but you may have other experiences of isolation in your life.
And we thought that creating a zine where youth could share artwork, writing, and more on their experiences might help combat feelings of isolation.
Isolation is something we all experience. And that is okay! This zine is a place where you can express how you feel, think, and react to isolation with the world.
Have you ever felt isolated?
Your work could be inspired by such experiences and emotions as…
- Feeling alone even when you were in a room filled with people
- Living on top of a mountain
- Being in a place where you don’t speak the language
- Moving to a town and being the “new kid”
Don’t feel restricted to these ideas – unique experiences are just as valued!

- Comics (recommended 1-2 pages)
