Regular submissions:
The editors of The Claremont Review are looking to publish first class poetry, short stories and short plays by young adult writers (aged 13-19) anywhere in the English speaking world. We publish anything from traditional to post modern, but with a preference for works that reveal something of the human condition.

The Claremont Review is not looking for Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, or most rhyming poetry; your first draft of anything; or previously published work.
