Zooey Magazine is about an unfiltered pursuit of simple, mindful living. 

Edited by Lucia Tran

Founding Editor-in-Chief Lucia Tran was only 16-years-old when she created Zooey Magazine in 2010, which was initially a print publication (last print edition was Issue 21). 

We explore the lives of women and their families in a simplified form through authenticity and transparency. By representing women and families as they are, we break down the barriers that mask our most authentic selves and divide our communities. We therefore challenge our readers to perceive our content with an open-mind, and in turn, share themselves with us as well. 

Name: The name ‘Zooey’ (pronounced as Zoh-EE)) derived from J.D. Salinger’s protagonist Zooey, a character in his beloved novel “Franny and Zooey.” 

Content: Since Zooey’s launch in 2010, Zooey has thrived as a collaborative magazine covering topics such as women's rights issues, entrepreneurship, crafts, entertainment, living simply, and much more. Zooey does not intend to serve as a guideline as to how one should live, but rather as an inspiration to encourage honest dialogue.

Disclaimer: Zooey may share opinions on current news and politics, but does not ever wish to offend anyone's personal beliefs. As a media outlet, we are not unbias nor claim to be. We only desire to speak with an open mind and open heart.
