Portland Young Writers – Submit to VoiceCatcher!

In a twist of joy, I am the Young Voices Editor for VoiceCatcherVoiceCatcher is an online journal that supports, inspires, and empowers female-identified writers and artists in the greater Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington areas.

Raise Your Voice

For Young Voices, we are particularly interested in hearing from female-identified writers between the ages of 14-18.

If you fit that category, you have from now until October 15th to submit your short stories, poems or essays to Voicecatcher.org. Click there for their submission guidelines, or check them out below.

Feel free to ask me any questions. I heard so many great Young Voices in the Spring Issue, and I look forward to reading many more!

VoiceCatcher Submission Guidelines

Submissions are open for the Fall 2017 Issue from September 4th through October 15th, 2017. VoiceCatcher accepts submission of poetry, prose, or art, according to the guidelines laid out below. Submissions are always open for the Community Site, an online collection of craft essays, book reviews, and interviews. To submit an essay, review, or interview to Community Site, please scroll to the bottom of the web page.

Submissions are blind and accepted electronically through Submittable. Please read the guidelines carefully before hitting Send.

VoiceCatcher publishes new writing that has not appeared in print or online. If you’ve published a piece on your own website, blog or self-publishing site, please remove it before submitting to us.

We accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that you notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

We only accept submissions from female-identified and non-binary writers and artists who consider themselves residents of or strongly connected to the greater Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA areas.

We love to support returning voices, but if your work was published in our most recent issue, we ask you to wait at least one cycle before submitting again. This keeps the journal fresh and allows us to support as many new and emerging voices as possible.

If your work is accepted, you agree to grant us First North American Serial Rights and Electronic Archival Rights. At publication, all rights revert back to you. If your work subsequently appears in print or online, you agree to give credit to VoiceCatcher. We agree to contact you for permission to reprint your work.
