Voyage Novel Excerpt Contest

April 3 – June 1, 2023

It’s that wonderful time of year when books are forged from the creative energy brought on by springtime. We want to see all that hard effort rewarded, and we warmly invite you to send us your favorite chapters from your novels! Roll up your sleeves, write relentlessly, and send us your best!

Voyage CNF Prize

April 3 – June 1, 2023

There’s no story like a true story! Do you have a creative nonfiction piece that speaks to the teen experience, and is told from a teenager’s point of view? We’d love to read it! 

There's more!
