Submit your work
Are your poems and short stories ready to be submitted for consideration? If so, please submit your work using the Submission Form below and attach your work as a Word document or PDF. If you struggle with submitting your work via the form, please email us via our Contact page and we will get back to you promptly!
As a reminder, we are charging a $2.00 submission fee. If you submit more poems/stories than are paid for, we will only review the appropriate amount at our discretion.
Every student who submits their work for consideration will receive a free copy of our 100 Writing Prompts PDF to download & challenge their writing skills.
By acknowledging this waiver in the Submission Form below, you grant Behind the Vision, LLC permission to publish your poems and short stories in The Next Generation anthologies.
You also grant Behind the Vision, LLC permission to make minor revisions to your work if deemed necessary (grammar, spelling, and font) without consulting with you. Any greater revisions that are required will be made after receiving approval from you, the author, who retains all rights to your submitted poems and stories.
You must acknowledge this waiver in the Submission Form to be considered.
Comprehensive Review Form
Due to the high volume of submissions, we will be unable to provide a detailed review of every story we receive but students can request an in-depth comprehensive review.
Our Comprehensive Reviews consist of the following: Grammar, Spelling, Pacing, Flow, Areas of Strength, Areas of Improvement, and any Additional Suggestions that we believe may "elevate" the story.
Fee: $20.00 per review - requesting a Comprehensive Review counts as submitting to the contest so you don't need to double up!
Any student who submits 6 or more poems/stories will receive a complementary Comprehensive Review on one of their submitted stories. Please notify us using our Contact Page to confirm which story.
