Teen Issue of the Inlandia Literary Journeys Journal!


I’m so excited that I’m writing my first post on the day that the Inlandia Institute is announcing our first all-teen issue of Inlandia Literary Journeys, coming this spring. In a few days–November 1–the teen issue will open for submissions. Below is more information. If you know any creative teens in the IE, please pass the info along.


The Inlandia Institute is happy to announce that in the spring of 2018, it will publish the first completely teen issue of its online creative writing journal Inlandia: A Literary Journey. All Inland Empire teens (13-19 years old) are encouraged to submit fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book reviews, and artwork.

Work will be judged by Inlandia staff as well as by teens living in the IE. Those works selected will be published in the spring issue. Our goal is to highlight the creativity of our IE youth and to give them the opportunity to publish their work professionally. This speaks to our larger mission of recognizing, supporting and expanding all forms of literary activity through community programs in Inland Southern California.

  • We will be open for submissions on November 1, 2017.
  • Submissions will close on February 15, 2018.
  • Teens wishing to be guest editors may submit their request along with a teacher recommendation by December 15, 2017. (Note: teens may still submit in those categories which they are not judging. For example, someone judging fiction could submit a poem, an essay, a work of art, etc.)
