Welcome to the Newfoundland and Labrador Public Library TeenZINE!
This is a safe space to share your creativity and to explore through art, writing, and so much more!
Want to submit something to the TeenZINE? No problem!
Here is what you need to know:
**All creations are personal, so there is no room for negative feedback on anyone's work! Let's be kind to each other.**
After submitting to the TeenZINE, give yourself a pat on the back.
It takes courage to share your work, great job! :)
We want to collaborate with secondary teachers across the province!
