We’re on the hunt for personal essays and other creative nonfiction that specifically relates to the teen experience. We’re interested in publishing craft essays to the Voyage site, specifically those that relate to the art of writing YA. We're also interested in pieces that merge personal essay and craft essay--ones that also speak to the experience of being a YA writer.

How to submit

  • Processs


  • Cover letter

    Cover letters are optional, but it’s nice to know who is submitting to us. We do not need your mailing address.

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    Double-space your submission and use Times New Roman 12 pt font. Word docs work best!

  • Author's rights

    Uncharted Magazine holds first serial publication rights for three months after publication. Authors agree not to publish, nor authorize or permit the publication of, any part of the material for three months following Uncharted Magazine’s first publication. For reprints, we ask for acknowledgment of its publication in Uncharted Magazine first.

  • Additional info

    While the intended audience of YA is teenagers, almost half of YA readers are adults and Voyage is happy to be at the intersection of both groups. We are not interested in publishing a specific genre of YA, but we are interested in quality work by writers from a variety of backgrounds, especially #ownvoices.
