Good news, team! The Wren’s Nest Publishing Company is kicking up once again.
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Here–
Each summer, high school students at the Wren’s Nest create a literary journal to be published and sold exclusively at the Decatur Book Festival.
All editorial decisions regarding the journal are made by the 6 – 8 brilliant editors who work with us throughout the summer. They learn about about writing, editing, publishing, and being awesome from professionals in the print industry.
All of the short stories, essays, and artwork in the journal are contributed by Atlanta-area students. The program is free and competitive.
To get the word out, we sent many packets of information to high school teachers in Fulton and DeKalb counties.
We’ve also been diligently pestering previous editors to tell their friends. But we can’t reach everyone. We need your help!
Editor applications are due May 10th — a.k.a. so very, very soon. You, no doubt, know a high school student with writing ambition who would be perfect for this program. Will you please tell him or her about us?
Just point them to
- Detailed Publishing Company information
- Last year’s field trips to Paste Magazine and the AJC
- Pictures from our literary salon at the Decatur Book Festival.
Submissions for the journal are due June 14th.
Feel free to remind them how great this looks on college applications, what an amazing networking opportunity it is, and how hilarious Lain and I are.
