What is the Quaranzine?

The Huntington Beach Public Library is now accepting submissions to our Quaranzine!

What's the Quaranzine? It's an online collection of creative works by our community that document how we are all responding and adapting to this strange "new normal" we find ourselves in!

Who can submit? All ages are welcome and encouraged to submit their creative works. All submitted works must be appropriate for all ages!

Do I need to live in HB? Nope! You don't need to be a Huntington Beach resident to submit, just a resident of California.

What can I submit? Quaranzine submissions may include, but are not limited to:

•  Artwork  •  Comics   • Tutorials or DIYs  •  Original songs performed by you  •   Written work, 500 words or less (poetry, fiction, essays, top ten lists, review, etc.)   •   Videos   •  Recipes  •   Photography   •   Photo of something crafty you made at home
