How to submit

  • Processs


  • Cover letter

    We’re particularly interested in hearing about how you personally connect with the work you’re sending us and what it means to you. Great cover letters exclude unnecessary background information, providing thoughtful insight into the author’s work — and can sometimes make or break your odds of publication!

  • Eligibility

    Teen authors/photographers (13-18)

  • Formatting

    We simply ask that all submissions format their work using an eligible font and font size. If possible, please send your work in PDF format — this makes it easier for us to edit and transfer into the larger issue.

  • Author's rights

    StudentKind does not claim the rights to your work. Everything that you send us exclusively belongs to you, though by submitting it you consequently agree to the possibility of either publication or rejection.

  • Additional info

    We’re fairly new to the scene here at StudentKind! By simply submitting your best work, you help us grow and expand our audience. We can’t wait to see what you have to offer.
