Hello Everyone and Happy Thursday! This week, I think it would be good idea to talk about how us young people can get published…and to work on it! Nothing feels more rewarding than knowing people are reading your work. So, I’ve rounded up a list of magazines and websites that publish teen work, all here! And the best part is, that some of them pay! (Good money too.)
Now, if you’re wondering, this magazine ONLY publishes teen work. They publish art, photos, and all kinds of writing. No matter what, you get published on their website, but the best works actually get published in their magazine. They don’t pay, but you do get the bonus of a free magazine, with your work in it! Over the course of the year, they also have great teen writing camps, so you might want to check those out!
The Claremont Review is a great magazine. They publish teens from all over the world, as long as the work is in English, and are very supportive of teen artists everywhere. Their magazine is, however, only published twice a year, and so consider it prestigious is you get published. (As in you are super amazing and I wish I were you) But WARNING: You can only submit one work per year, so make sure that the work you submit is your very best, because that’s it. Any others will be declined. They pay $10 CAD per page, or $50 CAD if your artwork is on the cover.
Polyphony H.S. is a teen literacy magazine that is only published once a year. Again, this one is very prestigious, and if you get published in it I am automatically jealous. Polyphony is completely published by teens. Even the editors are teens. Basically, this is THE magazine. They don’t pay, but it is still really really cool to be published there.
Canvas publishes anyone and everyone 13- 18 years old…which makes sense because their motto is “for teens, by teens” Which I think is pretty cool. They don’t pay, but again, it’s a really cool magazine.
One story is currently seeking literary fiction short stories. It is formatted as a contest, and the winners get published
Ember is a semi-annual journal of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction by writers ages 10-18. They publish flash fiction, short stories, poetry, and creative nonfiction. They pay 2 cents per word, or $20 per work, whichever is more.
The Apprentice Writer publishes prose, poetry, or photography. They are looking for the best written work and photography by high school students. They don’t pay
And that’s it. A collection of magazines that publish teens. I would love to hear back from you, and if you could let me know if I missed anything, that would be AMAZING! Thanks guys!
