The Teen Chapbook Series offers young writers the space and opportunity to come in with a story and leave out an author. As a signature project of [Y]volve Publishing, this annual series publishes short manuscripts of creative writing by Chicago teens age 15-19 in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.
Teen Chapbook Series authors gain a myriad of opportunities and experiences beyond print publication of their work. They receive mentorship of a professional writer, one-on-one peer collaboration with an [Y]volve editor, workshops, readings, photo shoots, and more.
