Submission Instructions

There are two key requirements:
  • Your story should be accessible to most teens, not just the avid readers.
  • You must submit anonymously. (Submission requirements are similar to those for standard publication here).
  1. It should go without saying that your piece is polished and publishable. If your story needs proofing and revision, it will be rejected.
  2. If published here, your work will be fully available to readers to see for free. I will not own your work, though. It's yours and if you choose to have it taken down at any time I will abide by your wishes. It is my hope that acceptance here will help you on your way to a traditional (and lucrative) publishing deal.
  3. As part of my commitment to judge your writing without prejudice please do NOT provide a bio, resume, or any sort of additional information. I do not want to know your experience, age, gender, race, or anything else about you until your piece is accepted.
  4. Your submission should be as anonymous as possible. Please remove any identifiers from your work. I understand tha
  1. t your email address may reveal your name. That's okay, but if you have an email that obscures your name -- even better!
  2. You should not identify a genre for your story. Where it "fits" can be a discussion if your piece is selected.  Please do not forget that this site is for writers of material for youth--middle grades through new adult.
