Chautauqua is looking for Young Voices—writers in middle and high school—to submit to the journal. Young Voices submissions are eligible for publication either in the print journal or online on our blog.
Submissions may include nonfiction (1500 word limit), fiction (1500 word limit), poetry (1 to 3 poems), or flash (up to 750 words), and must include a cover note by, and email address for, a teacher, mentor, or parent. In the note, please identify either a school or writing program the author attends or participates in.
If you are considering submitting to Chautauqua, please consider ordering the current issue or preordering the next issue. Writers who use our online submissions portal are able to order paper copies for just $12.00. You will get a thorough feel for the kind of writing we love—and, clearly, what we publish.
Because we operate in conjunction with the Creative Writing program at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, our reading windows are as follows:
February 1—April 1 (by midnight, PST) and September 1—November 1 (by midnight, PST).
