Please check out the Young Authors Guide on NewPages.com.
This is guide where young authors (as defined by each publication) can find places to publish their writing. It is not meant to be an exhaustive list, but rather is a select list of childrens, teen, and early college-age publications in print as well as online that have open submissions with guidelines, an editorial selection process, and a regular print cycle. Some publish only young authors, some publish all ages for young audiences. For more specific submission guidelines, visit the publication's website.
Also included in this guide are contests for young writers. These are carefully selected for quality and sensitivity to not wanting young writers to be taken advantage of (with promises of publication and high entry fees). Almost all are no-cost entry with some awarding scholarship money.
This is not a paid-for page or an advertising page in any way. It is a page I have put together as a resource to encourage young writers in their interest.
If you know of other publications or contests that could be added to this list, please e-mail me with information: denisehill-at-newpages.com
