Support Literary Teens

Let's keep submissions free!

We had huge growth last year. Submissions to Volume 15 increased by 78% and website traffic doubled. Our relaunched online platform that includes a workshop, blog, and video content feeds the interests of the thousands of teens who are online looking for literary engagement.

As much as the growth excites us, the increased volume strains our small organization. Unlike most literary organizations, we do not charge a fee for submissions, knowing that a fee will shut some out.

This year we appeal to you to help us keep submissions free. Help us respond to the thousands of teens seeking literary enrichment.

​Every donation makes a difference. Here are some of the ways we will put your funds to use:

  • $20: cover the cost of editorial commentary to a writer

  • $70: one online workshop scholarship

  • $200: cover the cost of a student editor

  • $575: one summer workshop scholarship

  • $1,250: funds a year's website expenses

  • $1,800: funds office space

  • $25,000 fund Program Evaluation by education professionals
