About

Line Zero is the place where it all starts. It’s the blank page, the empty beginning and the start of something new. It’s the excitement of a story about to unfold, and it’s also the terrifying emptiness of writer’s block. Most of all, it’s taking that step into artistic creation.


Line Zero:

  • Is a quarterly print publication
  • Prints editorial content on arts and writing
  • Prints 10 poems per issue, 8 short stories and 12 pieces of art & photography
  • Is independently published
  • Is focused on the indie artist and writer

Line Zero is an emerging, independent print journal dedicated to writing and the arts. Unlike any other publication of its kind, Line Zero features the hybrid content of a traditional literary journal and a collection of editorial essays on art, writing, music, publishing, photography, creative writing reference, book and tech reviews, and art events. Each quarterly issue features the writing of artists currently entrenched in the creative process and covers a range of experiences, featured photographic entries, a literary and poetry contest and art & music news.

Line Zero is edited by Renda Dodge, Bailey Shoemaker Richards and Paul Blake and published by Pink Fish Press.
