NEW CASTLE –New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer and Diana Brown, Manager of New Castle County Libraries invited children and teens to share their art by participating in PAGES and IMAZINE. PAGES is a children’s literary and art magazine for children between the ages of 4 and 11. Young artists and writers can contribute by submitting a poem, joke, comic, short story, or hand-drawn art or collage. Entries can be submitted at the library or by filling out a basic form online and attaching a copy of the art or written work (https://nccde.org/1961/PAGES).
“Each year I am impressed with the literary and artistic talents of some of our youngest County residents,” said County Executive Meyer. “I am so appreciative of their willingness to share their gifts with all of New Castle County is wonderful. I am looking forward to receiving my copies of IMAZINE and PAGES soon.”
Submissions will be reviewed and selected by library staff for inclusion in library publications, and those artists and writers included will receive a free copy of the PAGES magazine to keep. Separate magazines may be produced by each participating library.
IMAZINE is the annual Delaware Libraries teen literary and artistic magazine. Teens can be part of the excitement by contributing their poetry, short story, drawing, painting, photography, and more, to the 11th volume of the magazine. There is a 1,500-word limit on written submissions and teens may submit up to 3 pieces per category. Entries can be submitted at the library or online by filling out a quick google form (https://nccde.org/371/IMAZINE) and emailing magazine submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. The print magazine will show the top library staff selected submissions. The online magazine will show all accepted submissions.
