One Teen Story is Accepting Submissions

The last four issues of One Teen Story
I've raved about One Teen Story before, but hope you won't mind if I do so again. I'm such a fan of this lovely little literary gem that arrives in my mailbox each month. It's a special treat, like getting a letter from a pen pal or old friend. It's not the same as buying a book, where you've read the flap copy or heard about it and know what to expect. One Teen Story comes as a delightful surprise each month. The only hints as to what it contains are the title, author and cover illustration (always fabulous). 

It makes me want to write short stories! For those of you who do, One Teen Story is accepting submissions through April 30th for its second volume. They're looking for short stories for the young-adult audience (specifically for ages 14 and up). All genres of fiction are welcome, from 2,000-4,500 words in length. Their submission guidelines are here. Good luck!
