Looking for Writers 18 + Under for Literary Journal

  • November 12, 2021

Toad Hall Editions is looking for writers 18 and younger for their submissions of poetry, essays, short stories, creative nonfiction, and experimental works for our journal Buttered Toast. Submissions will be accepted until Tuesday, November 30, 2021; publication to be released in early 2022. We will also be holding a cover art contest for each issue! Submit your artwork that relates to this issue’s theme—the artist whose work is selected for the cover will receive a cash prize.

Our inaugural issue’s theme, “The World According to Me” invites you to consider the authority of your perspective. What do you see about the world, both outside and inside of yourself? What would you LIKE to see? Are there questions or challenges that you’ve been holding and trying to disentangle or come to terms with? What are your experiences of wonder, peace, joy, confusion, or upset, and how do you hold the contradictions of those experiences? What are the musings, dreams, investigations, and insights that have contributed to how you move about, consider, and make sense of things? We are interested in learning from you and your experiences, and what insight, wisdom, and reflections you have gathered from your life so far.

Submission fee for written work: FREE
Submission fee for our cover art contest: FREE
