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 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 and an 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 reading the current issue or ordering a back issue. You will get a  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 15—March 15 (by midnight, PST) and September 1—October 1 (by midnight, PST).
