10 Publications for Young Writers and Artists
Young Writers Are Getting Published
If you're like many young creative writers who have been writing for years and are now ready to try to get published then you're in luck. There are a bunch of magazines (in print and online) that accept original work (including artwork) from youngsters as young as 11 years of age.
The Claremont Review
"The Claremont Review" publishes high-quality poetry, stories, and short plays by writers aged 13-19. Though it's based in Canada, the "Claremont Review" showcases writers from all over the English-speaking world, so don't shy away from this publication if you live in the U.S., or elsewhere
Though "Cicada," a magazine filled with stories and poems written for young adults, is such a fan-favorite it's not always able to accept blind submissions, the quality of the periodical is such that you should give it a try. Also, "Cicada" offers regular contests for writers so it's good to stay on top of this magazine.
Founded in 2008, "KidSpirit" is an unaffiliated spiritual magazine for young people aged 11-15. It targets young people who hail from all kinds of backgrounds (and affiliations). The common denominator is that the "KidSpirit" audience likes to think about "the meaning of life and the big questions that affect us all."
