Teen Anthology: Change the World

Accepting Submissions November 1st-January 1st


There are a million ways to change the world: choosing to be kind to others, planting a garden, recycling, standing up for what you believe in, helping those in need, rescuing animals, and so many more.

But also, writing great stories. Fiction is the vehicle for learning what it’s like to be another person, feeling empathy, and learning about realities beyond our own. Stories change the world in their own way, and so do their heroes and heroines, accomplishing death-defying feats, life-altering journeys, and fighting for good against evil.

Zombies. Climate Change. Superheroes. Paranormal Events. Outer Space. Mystery. Suspense. Thrillers. Romance. Adventure. Terror. Humor. 

You change the world. Your stories change the world. Join us as, together, we all do our part to change the world.
