Writing Workshops, Retreats, Mentoring

CICADA magazine for ages 14+

CICADA is a YA lit/comics magazine fascinated with the lyric and strange and committed to work that speaks to teens’ truths. We publish poetry, realistic and genre fic, essay, and comics by adults and teens. Our readers are smart and curious; submissions are invited but not required to engage young adult themes.

Especially welcome: works by people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQAI+ folks, genderqueer folks, and other marginalized peoples. Not welcome: cultural appropriation.
