Homeschool Literary Quarterly-- new online publication for student writing, from WriteGuide
I just received word today about the new project that WriteGuide, a company that offered individualized online writing instruction and tutoring especially for homeschool students, has just begun. Here's what their website says:
The Homeschool Literary Quarterly (see: http://www.homeschoolliterary.com/ ) is an online, quarterly literary magazine published and sponsored by WriteGuide.com, a Company Devoted to the Teaching of Writing.
Our purpose is to
(1) Promote the literary arts within the homeschool community.
(2) Provide a place where homeschool writers can showcase their work, and receive intelligent commentary from readers.
(3) Assist homeschoolers who are considering a career in publishing or writing.
They'll accept poems, short stories, personal essays, book reviews, and more. I hope to see lots of Pennsylvania homeschool students taking part in this good opportunity-- I know I'm going to tell my Writing Club about this option for publishing their wonderful work to a wider audience! Right now they are accepting works for their Winter issue, and will be specially looking for seasonal and holiday pieces.
Here's info on submitting your work, taken from their website:
Submission Process and Terms of Submission:
The current deadline for the Christmas/December edition is November 15, 2010. We’re looking for short stories, flash fiction, essays, poems, and memoirs. If you’d like to submit something that doesn’t fit into one of those categories, please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All work must be submitted electronically, in e-mail format, to email@example.com. Do not send any attachments unless we ask you to send one! When you submit your work, please begin with a short letter, explaining who you are, what the piece of writing is about, and any other background information that you’d like to share. Then, paste the body of the work below your closing.
All work must be original. If someone else has published it, or is scheduled to publish it, please don’t submit it to us. When we receive your submission, we’ll read it carefully, and will let you know within two weeks (14 days) whether or not it will be published.
By submitting your writing to the Homeschool Literary Quarterly, we assume 1) that you are a homeschooled student, 2) that your parents are aware that you’re submitting your work, and they approve of your actions.
If the work that you submit to the Homeschool Literary Quarterly is accepted for publication, it remains your work. By submitting the work, you’re granting us “First Rights,” which means you grant us the right to publish it first. After the piece is published, you’re welcome to submit it elsewhere, and to use it however you see fit. But if you publish it somewhere else, you’ll need to give credit to the Homeschool Literary Quarterly, so that the second publisher won’t think he’s publishing something new and original.
