elementia is a literary arts magazine published to represent and uplift young adults. We accept original poetry, fiction, nonfiction, graphic stories, photography and illustrations.
Submit your original poetry, short stories, essays, comics, or artwork through February 1, 2021.
Over the quivering surface of the stream,
The moon issued a silent scream.
The fog of war flowed silently adrift,
The pain of the night was silent and swift.
A moth fluttered in the silent breeze,
Surrounded by the scent of death and disease.
Young Adult Submission Committee
Do you want to be a part of a young adult group selecting what goes in elementia? If you are in grades 9-12 and are interested in writing or graphic design, we encourage you to join our group. Applications are available online. Have questions about the committee? Email elementia.
If you are a teacher of creative writing or visual arts, please reach out to elementia staff, to find out how we can help you in your classroom!
