Emrys is excited to announce the resurgence of Young Emrys Journal, an annual literary journal for students in grades 3-12!

Open to kids across Upstate* South Carolina, this journal will highlight the depth and breadth of young southern voices. Selected students will be published in a print anthology in late Spring 2021.

Submissions open November 4, 2020 and close December 14, 2020. Visit https://www.emrys.org/young-emrys

Students are able to submit fiction (up to 3,000 words) or between 1-3 poems. We are not accepting non-fiction at this time.

Standard submissions are FREE!

We have an optional fee of $9.95 for students who crave specific feedback. One of our editors will write a short paragraph commenting on the submission and providing ideas for growth.

Click the buttons below to begin your submission. If you wish to submit both a piece of fiction and poetry, you will need to submit them separately.
