Market: One Teen Story

Call for SubmissionsDo you write short young adult fiction?  If you do, you need to look into One Teen Story.  

Each issue of this magazine features a single story.  8 issues feature the work of an adult who writes for teens. 4 issues feature the work of a teen writer. You can click through to past issues to see a list of whose work they’ve published as well as read an exerpt from their stories.

The editors want stories that are 2,000 to 4,500 words long.  They look for stories that focus on teen experiences in identity, friendship, family, coming-of-age and more.  Avoid gratuitous profanity, sex and drug use.  All genres are encouraged but the editors find that stand-alone stories work better than excerpts from longer works.

This is a paying market.  Authors receive $500 for first North American serial rights which revert back to the author upon publication.
