Please join us for our third annual PWN Teen Voice & Verse Writing Contest!
Our editors yearn to see something different, to learn from a piece of work, or to discover a new point of view. We are looking for young, honest voices daring enough to share those stories.
How can a poem reveal an observation, emotion, or experience in a new or unique way? How can a story change a reader’s way of thinking?
We want stories that open our minds to new possibilities.
