Welcome to New Voices!


Hey, my peeps! Finally! Feedback for the 2017 competition is on its way to you. If you entered, check your email. We also sent the feedback to your parent/guardian. We're really sorry for the awful delay. Thanks for your patience.

Scroll down to see the winners of the 2017 New Voices Young Writers Competition. Congratulations to our wonderfully talented writers.

The 2016 Anthology has been shipped. Copies are available for sale. It will also be available for free download right here on this very website in a week or so.

"Every sentence must do one of two things — reveal character or advance the action." ~ Kurt Vonnegut

    "Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for." ~ Kurt Vonnegut

 "Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water." ~ Kurt Vonnegut

“If a book is well written, I always find it too short.” ~ Jane Austen


Genre categories are irrelevant. I dislike them, but I do not have the casting vote. Writing is writing, and stories are stories. Perhaps the only true genres are fiction and non-fiction. And even there, who can be sure. ~ Tanith Lee (1946-2015)
