Bryant Community Zine


Listen up.

We’ve got a bone to pick with 2020. And, if you’re anything like us, then you probably do, too.  It wasn’t just the wildfires, the toilet paper shortage, the murder hornets and cicadas. It wasn’t only RBG’s passing, the social and political unrest, or the rise and fall of Tiger King. And it wasn’t simply the election or COVID or rising unemployment and a decimated economy. 2020 has been a super-ultra-marathon of challenges and uncertainties.

Here’s the deal: we’re inviting you to get back at 2020. Tell 2020 how it made you feel, what it meant to you. Make a collage, draw something. Write a poem or a story or a song. Then send your creation to us, and we’ll publish it in Bryant’s first-ever zine.

Covid Diaries

Professor Martha Kuhlman’s forthcoming publication The Covid Diaries (pictured), is one amazing example of creative expression and 2020. Read more of The Covid Diaries here.

What to submit:

  • Anything that fits on an 8.5 x – 11″ portrait page (digital or print!). 
    • OR two 8.5 x 11″ pages or a landscaped 11″ x 17″ page.

How to submit:

Email submissions to library@bryant.edu OR mail submissions to

Krupp Library, Bryant University
1150 Douglas Pike, Smithfield, RI

Submissions can be created digitally or old school and photos or scans of your masterpiece can be shared.

  • If you’d like to go really, really old school you can also snail mail the physical version for us to scan for inclusion.  Be sure to include a little information about yourself, name, major or department.
  • If you’d prefer to keep your submission anonymous in the publication, that’s ok too, just let us know.

Submissions will be accepted through January 29, 2021 with an expected February 2021 publication date.

Still not sure what the heck a “zine” is?  Check out these resources below for examples and more information.  We’re looking forward to seeing what you have to share about 2020!
