WRITERS CHANGE THINGS
Memento — Lino Cannavacciuolo
WE LOVE OUR STORYTELLERS . . . whether they speak through photos, written word, music, film, dance or any other creative vehicle! You need a writer to tell you what happened at the house in the picture above.
ZO IS A DEVELOPMENT SPOTLIGHT.
We believe that creative minds can change the consciousness level of earth and want to expose, support and help our community to develop ways to “follow their passion.” To love what you do and find ways to use, sustain and improve your creative gifts is the beginning of satisfaction. It not only helps you — it will help others. It’s not just about what you do … it’s about WHO YOU ARE — inside and creatively!
In this time where INFORMATION of every kind is almost instantly available, CHANGE is possible on an exponential level. We know that the world is riddled with problems, but there are creative people everywhere that are working to solve those problems. You must get your information from more than one source to be truly informed for next-level consciousness. The next level is up to all of us. Will it be a catastrophic continuation to abusing the resources of the earth until we are all poisoned; will we fight about it until we are all drained, depressed and continue the various US AGAINST THEM syndromes (nations, cultures, religions, race, economic status, etc.) that has manipulated the status quo for eons — or — can we WORK ON CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO EVERYTHING.
While all of us at ZO love literature, art, music, architecture, design and the creativity in all of life — we do realize that these enjoyments cannot exist if earth as we know it does not exist. These times are tumultuous and our world is on the verge of many catastrophes. We want to be a voice for a higher human consciousness of the need for nonviolent change. With an increasingly connected global community — we want to help effect this change THROUGH THE ARTS and COMMUNICATION.
The bottom line may be that all of us are either actively being creative or destructive on many levels. We are creating our own destiny or possibly doing things to destroy it; we are creating a better environment for us and others or we are not. Whatever you are doing to others you are doing to yourself – ultimately. If you are improving yourself, making creative choices to work, create and survive – great. If you are harming yourself, your relationships, your neighborhood, the planet … well … just think about it. It could be as simple as throwing trash out of the window or being careless with a match or you could be cutting down entire rain forests or simply over fishing (to somehow survive). We are not pointing fingers or judging anyone — we are asking ourselves these questions. These are just conscious observations, as we at ZO try to improve our minds and creative gifts, we are looking for writers and other creative types who are also consciously trying to create a better atmosphere.
“The purpose of a writer is
to keep civilization from destroying itself.”
― Albert Camus
Yes, it is that important!

ZO Concept Director
After college, where I studied architectural design and communications, I began a science fiction script that has matured into many volumes of a continuing saga. That adventure is quite an inspiration for the ZO Concept.
ZO Magazine’s unique presentations combine creative unions between a diverse constituency. Our goal is to showcase blended and circular perspectives of life, philosophy, mystery and fantasy through these creative offerings … and touch the world as we do.
I am extremely excited about our fictional documentary – The O.D.D. ROOM | Other Dimensional Discussion. Because it had to be invented and not just written, I do believe the alternate universes, dimensional shifts and metaphysically derived global conversations in its structure may serve our — different kind of universe concept in very unique ways.
