If you like writing fiction, non-fiction, or poetry, and you’re in high school,(you don’t have to like high school), visit PolyphonyHS.com. It’s a literary magazine written and run by high school students. You can submit up to 3 pieces at a time, and whether you are accepted into the magazine or not, you’ll get your entry critiqued. Which brings me to the next point.
If you happen to be great at editing or want to give it a try, you should look into being a first reader. The First Reader reads some of the entries and makes comments, then sends it on to the Second Reader. Any high school student can be a first reader, and it’s a lot of fun! For more information (and a better explanation) click the link above.
Seriously. It’s awesome. Give Polyphony HS your full attention… NOW.
