Hey guys and gals! It occurred to me that, if I’m looking to have a short story written for a specific prompt… well, tumblr might be a good place to ask. :)
What do you say? Want to see your 1500 - 2500 word short story published in the YA Magazine? Here’s the prompt!
“Valentine’s Day is approaching. Teen #1 encourages teen #2 to ask their crush to the upcoming dance. At the end of the short, the crush is revealed to be a transgendered/non-binary teen.”
It’s really important to me that teens have more positive representations of non-cis teens in their entertainment… especially when those teens are seen as desirable, intelligent, loving possible partners, boyfriends, and girlfriends. :) I hope you agree!
Submit your story and the best one may be chosen for publication in our February issue! (IMPORTANT: We retain the right to edit the story to fit our audience and needs! If no stories are submitted that fulfill the prompt enough, then no story shall be chosen rather than choosing “the next best thing”.)
Stories must be received by January 1st to be considered.
Thanks so much for taking a look at this! If you’re interested in the short story, please feel free to message us here!
