Springboard is now accepting submissions for consideration!

Due to disruptions caused by the COVID-19 virus, Springboard Teen Literary Journal will be published as an online journal. We hope to publish a print book of selections later in the year. Due to this change, we will be accepting submissions year-round.


Springboard Teen Literary Journal is looking for writers, grades 6-12, in Northwest Ohio to submit:

Fiction – Please limit submissions to 3,000 words or less

Poetry – You may submit up to 3 poems

Nonfiction – Essays, memoir, creative nonfiction; please limit submissions to 3,000 words or less

We do not accept Fanfiction, Book Reports, or School Essays

Once there, carefully read the guidelines and disclaimers before submitting. You must sign up for a Submittable account and be able to upload a file (.doc, .docx, or .pdf) for submission. If you are unable to upload your file, please contact us at editor@springboardjournal.com to make alternate arrangements. 

We can't wait to read your work!
