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!

How do I submit an item to the events calendar?

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.

How much does it cost to sign-up for an account?

Zip06 accounts are 100% free. Signing up will only cost you a few moments of your time.

Can I get a copy of an old issue?

Education/Lectures

Old Lyme Town Hall
52 Lyme St., Old Lyme, CT

Potapaug Audubon invites 3 Guest Speakers: Biologist Kris Vagos and Shaun Roche of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Naturalist Corrie Folsom-O'Keefe of Audubon Connecticut

Connecticut's shoreline is one of the most developed places on the east coast, but there are still a few natural areas that remain where specific wildlife thrive. Charismatic bird species like great egrets, American oystercatchers, and glossy ibis return to Connecticut's undeveloped barrier islands to nest and raise their young. Nearby marshes and mudflats teem with fish, shellfish, snails and other life to help maintain the delicate balance of our estuary.

Join us as we explore the natural history of this unique habitat through an interactive presentation followed by Q &A.

Kirtan with Andrew and Jamie

Misc. Events

Shoreline Center for Wholistic Health
35 Boston Street, Guilford, CT

Join Andrew and Jamie in celebrating the divine within. Kirtan is an ancient tradition of call-and-response chanting, which uses the musical repetition of sacred sounds, known as mantras, to still the mind and awaken the spirit. Together we will explore the beauty of devotion -- to ourselves, to each other, to the divine. If you've tried quiet sitting meditation but found it difficult or uncomfortable, kirtan may be just the remedy for you! By repeating the mantras together in a communal setting we are able to achieve the same peace and clarity that all other mindfulness practices offer, but in a less structured, more joyous way.

Thursday, Mar. 5, 2015, 5:30 p.m.
