Written by high school creative writing students, "newsprung" is a blog, not a magazine, not a contest, and as such publishes new work – whether text or image or both – when there is something to publish. In addition to our own posts, we’re seeking to publish and promote the best literary writing, visual art, and fine-art photography by high school students (grades 9 – 12) and their teachers, who are living and working within the Deep South. Our two areas of interest are: writing and literature, and visual art and fine-art photography.
We are currently taking submissions for possible inclusion in an ongoing anthology. All information, themes and how to submit, are located on our website. We hope that there are women in your group that will consider sharing their work with us. We will be publishing an electronic version(s) as we also look for a publisher. Thanks for your consideration.
In addition to our website we also have a Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/Kaleidoscope-WoJo-188435748422369/
