NewPages maintains two guides where young readers and writers can find print and online literary magazines to read, places to publish their own works, and legitimate contests: Publications for Young Writers and Writing Contests for Young Writers. Both of these are ad-free resources regularly updated with carefully vetted content, and “young” can be from K to college undergraduate. As long as there is clearly “dedicated” space to a young age group, we will consider listing it here.
Please share these with any young creatives in your lives and with adults who want to encourage youth in the creative arts – parents, teachers, community organization leaders, librarians, etc.
If you know of any great resources for youth that we do not have listed, please contact us. We love to keep these resources alive and growing!
