We are calling for young people 21 years and under to submit poetry, fiction, essays, journalism, visual art, photography, or any other medium that highlights the beauty and strength of humanity. You can choose to create a piece about a human rights issue/violation that is affecting the world, or something that highlights the beauty, sincerity, and vulnerability of our world. We want to highlight as many young voices as possible, so please submit as soon as you can!

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
