Calling all teen writers ages 14–19. One Teen Story, a literary magazine for young adults, is looking for original, unpublished fiction written by teens. Any genre is fine, and the short story must be between 1,500–4,000 words. Submissions can be made from May 1 through June 30, and the winning story will be featured in the May 2015 issue of One Teen Story. The author will also receive $500 and some great swag.
Who’s the judge? None other than Tara Altebrando, author of The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life, Dreamland Social Club, The Pursuit of Happiness and several other critically acclaimed young adult novels. For more information, visit the One Teen Story contest website.
