Have some questions? Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions for quick answers.

What is Zip06?

Zip06 is the digital news division of Shore Publishing covering the towns along the CT shoreline between New Haven and the Connecticut River. It is a community news platform that aims to not only provide up to the minute local news and information but also provides a platform for community engagement where registered users can share opinions, photos and information with their neighbors. Join in the conversation!

Are you connected to my weekly newspaper: the East Haven Courier, the North Haven Courier, The Sound, The Source, Harbor News, or the Valley Courier?

Yes! The newspaper that arrives free each Thursday in your mailbox is created by the same staff that runs Zip06!

Do you publish the Shore Line Times?

No. The Shore Line Times is published by the New Haven Register. You can contact them at 203-789-5200.

Will you publish my stories, photos, or events?

Yes! Registered members of the Zip06 community can contribute stories, photos, and events.

If I submit through Zip06 will my story, photo, or event be printed in my local newspaper?

Not yet! We're still working on making this happen. For now, if you want something to appear both online and in print you should submit to the website and also email news@shorepublishing.com

How do I submit a story or announcement?

If you are a registered user of Zip06, please click here to submit. If you have not yet registered, please click here to do so and then submit away!

What is 'News From You'?

'News From You' is exactly what it sounds like: It's news from you!

This is the special place on Zip06 where all of the news submitted by members of the community winds up. Do you have an article you want to publish? Are you getting married? Did your child make the honor roll? Those are all examples of news from you!

Do I need to create an account?

No. Creating an account with Zip06 is completely optional. You can read all of our stories, browse calendar items, watch videos, and browse photos without ever creating an account.

Some users, however, will want to create an account to submit events to the calendar, post stories and announcements, participate in some online contests, and comment on stories.

The choice is completely yours.

ESSEX-The Spinners Show Their Stuff

Art Exhibits/Openings

Hill's Academy
22 Prospect Street, Essex, CT

Before the mass manufacturing of textiles, the processing of raw materials into fabric was much more labor intensive. After the fibers are gathered and prepared, they need to be spun into thread. (Think Sleeping Beauty's spinning wheel.) Spinning fibers into a strong and uniform thread or yarn requires skill, practice and patience. The Spinners will be spinning their stuff at Hill's Academy on November 11, 2012 from 1-4 pm. Stop by, sit and chit chat awhile as you watch the rhythmic, almost hypnotizing process of turning rough fiber material into sleek strands. The Spinners are looking forward to sharing their passion with you!

Ken Foster, "I'm A Good Dog: Pit Bulls, America's Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet" & Alison Pace, "You Tell Your Dog First"

Author Events

R.J. Julia Booksellers
768 Boston Post Road, Madison, CT

I’M A GOOD DOG is a tribute to one of America's most popular but misunderstood breeds, the pit bull. Filled with full-color photographs of adorable pit bulls, inspiring stories and resources for pit bull owners, I’M A GOOD DOG is a heartwarming tribute to one of America's most widely discussed breeds.
In the tradition of You Had Me At Woof, YOU TELL YOUR DOG FIRST is a charming collection of essays about being a young New York woman with a dog. Alison Pace’s funny, rueful saga about family, apartment hunting, life in one of the Upper East Side’s best known “dog-friendly” buildings, looking for love and finding a therapist, all will resonate with the 30-40 something readers who made both PUG HILL and YOU HAD ME AT WOOF successful trade paperbacks.
