Tributary: An Online Journal for High School Writers
Tributary is an online journal being launched by the editors of River Teeth: A Journal of Nonfiction Narrative and the English Department at Ashland University. Since its inception in 1999, River Teeth—one of only four exclusively nonfiction journals in the country—has published the work of Pulitzer Prize–winning authors and has been awarded Pushcart Prizes and Best American Essays.
Because the editors of River Teeth also teach in Ashland University’s graduate and undergraduate creative writing programs, they have decided to wade the waters of younger writers as well, creating a place for high school creative writers to publish their essays, memoir and other narrative nonfiction.These will be showcased in this new online journal to debut in the fall of 2013. Tributary will begin by publishing nonfiction and may expand its publications to poetry and fiction once the journal is established.
We will begin accepting submissions on November 1, 2012 and plan to launch the first issue in the fall of 2013. Please check back soon for submission guidelines.
