Established on the 21rst of January, 2015.
Aimed toward stories for the young adult generation. Ranging from Romance, Fantasy, Contemporary Fiction, and more, these are stories that can make you think, feel, and immerse you in the worlds created by their authors.
What We’ll Accept:
(Please be aware that if the story has heavy sexual situations in it, it falls under the Mature Young Adult category regardless of its sub-genre.)
Diary-Type Young Adult Stories
Family & Relationships
LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, & Queer Stories.)
Mature Young Adult
Mystery Young Adult
What We Won’t Accept:
Works depicting excessive violence, heavy abuse, abusive pornography, and rape. (These are stories that focus exclusively on rape/excessive rape abuse. If there is a rape that is necessary to move the story along, but is not the focus of the story, then the book/story is acceptable. Heavy rape/violence stories are not acceptable, however.)
We do not condone these types of stories.
Accepted Story Lengths
Short Stories (2k – 10k word lengths)
Novelettes (10 – 17.5k word lengths)
Novellas (17.5 – 40k word lengths)
Novels (40 – 100k+ word lengths)
Poetry (100 words minimum length per poetry piece. We do ask that poetry submissions be a collection of poetry. 40-50 written pieces minimum.)
