We Real Cool: Chicago Teens Celebrating Our Miss Brooks

Miss Gwendolyn Brooks was an icon poet, feminist, mother, activist, and Chicagoan. Chicago is celebrating her 100th birthday and [Y]volve Publishing, the teen press of Revolving Door Arts, wants to include your teen voice for We Real Cool: Chicago Teens Celebrating Our Miss Brooks. 

We want your poems and stories that explore feminism, poetry, mothers, and/or being a Chicagoan.

2018 Teen Chapbook Series

If you are a teen between the ages of 14-19 interested in becoming a published author, please send us your work. The Teen Chapbooks Series selects 3-5 young writers to publish a chapbook of their creative writing. This is an opportunity to see your work in its own published book, and could award you further opportunities for exposure in the wider literary community of Chicago.

Your submission can explore any topic or theme you are drawn to in the genres of Poetry, Fiction, or Creative Nonfiction.
