Gigantic Sequins is a literary arts journal. Check out their announcement below about a contest for teen poets:
GIGANTIC TEEN SEQUINS:
CALLING ALL TEENAGE POETS!
In celebration of young poets, Gigantic Sequins is seeking submissions of poems from teenage writers ages 14 through 19 for an online feature!
Interested? Submit 3-5 poems, no longer than 2 pages each, to [email protected]
The deadline for submissions is JULY 20th, and all those who submit will be notified about the status of their submission by JULY 27th!
When you submit, please do the following!
1. Include a cover letter in the body of the email, listing your age, your email address, the name of your school and city, and a brief biography (any personal information of your choosing, up to 100 words).
2. Include your poetry submission as a document attached to your email in a .doc or .docx format.
A single poem from each age group will be given a spotlight on the Gigantic Sequins blog. Even if your poem is not selected for a spotlight, you will be listed on our site and receive the distinction of honorable mention in celebration of your dedication to poetry!
Each age group will be judged individually by the poet Robby Auld an undergraduate student at Salem State University, and by the poet Sophie Klahr, Robby’s mentor and Gigantic Sequins’ creative contributing editor.
The Gigantic Teen Sequins feature will appear on our blog during August 2015 and be publicized on all of the Gigantic Sequins social media sites.
You can find us online on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and our home site! Questions from teachers or students may be directed to Sophie at [email protected].
