I thought I’d take some free time this week to fill in our teenage readers on some amazing opportunities they can participate in. Although our mission is to support writers of experimental and avant-garde works, we take any opportunity we can to publish emerging writers and artists.
So, bearing that in mind, here is an opportunity I found! I’ll share a writing opportunity for teens on every day of this week.
An initiative run by Gigantic Sequins, this contest aims to increase the confidence and exposure of teen poetry around the English-speaking globe.
Poets from the age of 14 to 19 are asked to submit 2-3 poems before July 20, 2016. Entry is free. One poet from each age group will have one of their poems featured on the Gigantic Sequins blog.
Each age group will be judged by Teen Sequins editors, Sophie Khlar and Robbie Auld– and every poet who doesn’t win the feature in their age group will receive an honourable mention for their dedication to poetry!
