One Story, the non-profit group that celebrates short fiction by publishing one short story each month for the last ten years, is now going to offer stories written about the teen experience for “young adult readers of every age” – they know YA has a wider audience than only teens. I’m thrilled!
I love their format – simple and ad-free, just the right size to slip in a pocket or purse – or to tuck inside a boring textbook…
Check out One TEEN Story – issues will begin in September 2012.
For authors, the submission guidelines are posted as well.
You must be pretty excited and impatient to read an excellent short story right now! Well, good news – You don’t have to wait until September. Get thee to Hunger Mountain and read The White House – a deliciously creepy ghost story starring Amarilla Sarah Weathersby and including a “predatory piece of post,” by Jennifer Wolf Kam.
I’ve had the pleasure and the privilege to read some of Jen’s other works of fiction. Let’s just say, if you love spooky fiction, remember her name!
