One Teen Story is a literary magazine for young adult readers of every age. Each issue will feature one amazing short story about the teen experience.
Contest submission will be accepted from May 1st to June 30th, 2014.
One Teen Story will consider original, unpublished fiction written by teens ages 14 – 19. We are interested in great fiction of any genre — literary, fantasy, sci-fi, love stories and horror. What’s in a great short story? Interesting characters, a unique voice, and of course, a beginning, middle and end.
The winning story will be published in the May 2014 issue. Contest winners will receive $500, 25 copies of the magazine featuring their work, and a 28″ X 20″ poster of the cover featuring their story. The winner will also have an opportunity to edit his/her story for publication with a One Teen Story editor.
*To enter, you must be between the ages of 15 and 19 as of May 31, 2013.
Short stories should be between 1500 – 4000 words and be the writer’s own original, unpublished work.
Previously published stories and stories forthcoming at other publications cannot be considered.
No entry form or fee is required.
Only one submission per person.
One Teen Story reserves the right to publish the story in the form we choose. A parent must sign a consent form for One Teen Story to publish the names of the winner and honorable mentions on our website.
You must submit through our online Submission Manager.

YARN is an award-winning literary journal that publishes outstanding original short fiction, poetry and essays for Young Adult readers, written by writers you know and love, as well as fresh new voices . . . including teens!
YARN is of particular interest to and for young adult readers, 14 years and up. We have no restrictions for authors (fogies over the age of 18 write YA too) and no genre restrictions. (if you’ve got a story set in 2060, bring it on!) We only ask that the writing you submit be original and publishable, with some literary merit. (In other words, if you’ve written a slasher thriller with lots of smooching and slaying, we recommend sending it to Hollywood and not to us.) Send us only your very best.
Submit online to the email address appropriate to your genre. For information on how to do this, visit yareview.net/
