Local literary magazine seeks submissions

VERGENNES — Zig Zag Lit Mag is a recently founded arts and literature magazine supporting Addison County’s creative community. The volunteer editorial board of the magazine, a group of seven Vergennes-area residents, recently received a $1,750 grant from the Vermont Community Foundation’s Small and Inspiring grant program. The grant will help further Zig Zag’s mission to connect and sustain a community of local writers and readers by enabling them to create a physical and online space for publication of local work.
“The real goal of Zig Zag is to give the closet writers the confidence boost of walking into their local library and being able to find their own writing amongst the Hemingways, Christies, and others,” said Editor in Chief A. Jay Dubberly, “because real writing isn’t just something that exists on Kindles or mass-market paperbacks, it’s happening all around us all the time. And that’s how we arrived at our motto: Read Local. Write Local.”
The magazine’s platform is officially open for submissions and will be accepting a myriad of (black-and-white) artistic forms that align with the theme of the inaugural issue: “The View from my Window,” until July 31. For more information, check out thewebsite at zigzaglitmag.org.
Through its Small and Inspiring grants program, the Community Foundation hopes to help foster the spark and hope that keeps Vermonters healthy and happy by finding and supporting projects where a small grant can make a big difference.
For more information, contact the editorial board at litmag@bixbylibrary.org or contact Dubberly directly at ajaydubberly@gmail.com, or (603) 521-4110.
