Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Our mission is to create a high-quality literary magazine written, edited, and published by high school students. We strive to build respectful, mutually beneficial, writer-editor relationships that form a community devoted to improving students’ literary skills in the areas of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. We believe that when young writers put precise and powerful language to their lives it helps them better understand their value as human beings. We believe the development of that creative voice depends upon close, careful, and compassionate attention. Helping young editors become proficient at providing thoughtful and informed attention to the work of their peers is essential to our mission. We believe this important exchange between young writers and editors provides each with a better understanding of craft, of the writing process, and of the value of putting words to their own lives while preparing them for participation in the broader literary community.

We are open for sumbmissions from July 1 - April 30, with alternative reading periods (when all submissions receive feedback from editors) and themed contests (only feedback to winners). We close submissions before the final deadline if submission capacity is reached. Submissions accepted for publication are eligible for the Claudia Ann Seaman Awards for Young Writers.
