Launch Time

The ease and appeal of blogging is inspiring a new group of writers and creators to share their voices with the world. It is the soap box of the 21st century. Likewise, Zigzag Magazine is an answer to the artist's demand for free expression and recognition - a chance for digital natives and settlers to be immortalized in print. Paper, quickly crumpled, burnt, torn, and tattered, still brings us closer to reality than fleeting pixels. Not to mention, it is much easier to read a 'zine on the shitter than to fumble with a laptop in that moist environment. It is virtually impossible to wipe your ass with an online newspaper.

With that said, there are a few ways to get your hands on a copy of Zigzag 'Zine. The first way is to become a contributor. That means sending us scans of your artwork, photographs, stories, and/or poetry to For inside pages, we accept black & white images (proportionate to 4 x 7 inches), design files, and text. Cover submissions are printed in color and spreads are 11 x 8.5 inch pages. There is no limitation on subject matter. We only ask that you do what you want to do. Send us something you feel strongly about communicating or whole heartedly enjoy creating. There are no deadlines unless you want one. But heck, we sure need some material for the next issue, so send in your page soon!

If you'd like to check out the magazine before contributing, please contact us for back issues. (Contributers living in Florida always receive issues free of charge.) Otherwise, take notice of the PDF version of the latest issue. Zig Zag prints a new release every other month.
