Skidompha Library is closed until at least April 27th to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. Skidompha staff have been hard at work finding creative ways to continue library programming virtually.
Here are a few ways that YOU can connect with Skidompha Teen Programming online:
- Sophie, Skidompha’s Teen Librarian, will post up-to-date resources for teens ages 13 to 18 here as well as on Skidompha’s Teen Services Facebook Group. Join the group to stay up to date.
- Sophie has also been writing a Hoopla recommendation list and updating it weekly. Check it out! (Click here for tips on how to use your Hoopla account.)
- Creative writing + artwork is a wonderful outlet during difficult times. EPOCH Magazine is still accepting art and writing submissions for its Sixth Volume, set to publish in the middle of May. Check out how to submit below.
EPOCH – Teen ‘Zine: Accepting Creative Writing / Art Entries!
EPOCH is a creative magazine that publishes artwork and writing by humans age 13 to 18. Have you written something you liked for a class (or in your journal?) Did you really get into an art assignment? Submit your best work via email to be considered for the next volume accepting submissions (Epoch Vol. 6).
EPOCH Volume 5 was published in January 2020; Volume 6 is anticipated in summer 2020 (delayed from May of 2020 due to Covid-19 closures). We accept submissions on a rolling basis for future issues. Please submit your work for future issues of EPOCH via email.
JOIN THE EPOCH TEAM!
The EPOCH Editorial Team is small but mighty. We review writing and art submitted by our teen peers. We arrange (aka “curate”) the best-of-the-best into the next volume of EPOCH! We learn, hang out, eat snacks, talk about life, and discuss writing and art. We meet throughout the year at Skidompha Library based on group availability. If that sounds fun: APPLY, APPLY, APPLY!
