Poems may be submitted by the poet, or by a parent/legal guardian, or a teacher. Teachers may select at most five students per year and submit on their behalf, with the assurance to us that you will be able to help us get a parent’s signed permission prior to publication. Please remember that we will be choosing our favorite 20 poems from thousands submitted—try not to get anyone’s hopes up prematurely.

The author of the poem must have been age 15 or younger when the poem was written, and 18 or younger when submitted. The poets may use their whole name, first name, or a pseudonym at their parents’ discretion. We will not publish any contact information.

We want to provide a place for young writers to be able to gain credibility for their work. For this there is always the opportunity for the people to either be published in the journal, come on the podcast to be interviewed or apply for staff.

These allow for people to gain experience and or credibility for themselves as an author or professional within the writing world.

We have an rolling deadline for both the podcast and seasonal lit journals, but the themed journals will typically be only a month between submissions.
