Teen Programming

Online Programming For Teens

Even though we can’t hang out in the teen room yet, we are open for in-person browsing and adding new materials to the collection all the time. Skidompha staff have also 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:



EPOCH – Teen ‘Zine

EPOCH is a creative magazine that publishes artwork and writing by teens age 13 to 18. Have you written something you liked for a class or for yourself? Did you really get into an art assignment? Submit your best work via email to be considered for the next volume accepting submissions.

We are extending our submission deadline! Please submit by Friday, October 15, 2021.

poetry / prose / fiction / non-fiction 

photography / artwork / comics / drawings / miscellany

Please email submissions to: epoch@skidompha.org. Be sure to include your name, grade, and school.

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!

We accept applications on a rolling basis. We are looking for teens to join us for Volume 7!

The EPOCH Editorial Team is small but mighty. We review writing and art submitted by our teen peers. We arrange (aka “curate”) the chosen submissions 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! This year we’ll be meeting virtually over Zoom.

To apply, send Jeannette an introductory email with the following information:

A writing and/or art sample
