Submit to the Inaugural Issue of Lit Pup Magazine!


Helloooooo, readers, writers, and shark fans! Welcome or Welcome BACK to Lit PUP Magazine and the Lit Shark Community! I’m so grateful you’re interested in submitting.

We’re actively looking for submissions for the inaugural issue of Lit Pup Magazine, which will be BY youth writers and FOR youth writers.

We’re looking for poetry, fiction, and art from children and teens, as well as parents, and professional writers of children’s books, middle-grade books, and young adult books.

This is a general issue, so we are open to multiple genres, and the theme can be anything. Works incorporating marine life are always of interest but are not required for our general issues.

To submit, please see our submission portal page for more details on how to submit.
