Instructions for Contributors

Happening Publications will receive submissions to another side of
younger from writers 21 years of age or younger. There is no
submission, reading, agency, entry, publishing, or any other fee of any
kind. Original, previously unpublished poetry, fiction, critique,
memoirs, essays and other forms of nonfiction are welcomed for
consideration as well as work that has been previously or concurrently
published in a school or otherwise limited circulation periodical or the
author’s self-publication.  Requirements for publication include full
name, age, a statement that the submitted work is the author’s sole and
original work, and either that it is unpublished and not under
consideration elsewhere or, that it has been published in a school or
limited issue publication that should be named and is willing to permit
re-publication of the work, or, that it has been self-published. In all
cases publication is at the discretion of Happening Publications. Writers
are advised that only a small percentage of submitted material may be
accepted for publication but we are grateful for the privilege to
consider your best work. In the event of publication by Happening
Publications, future republication rights remain the property of the
author. Acknowledgment of another side of younger as first publisher
is requested.

Submitted work will be extended the courtesy of peer review by
Happening Publications’ review panel whose recommendations will
inform the decisions of the publishers. The review panel consists of
reviewers who are age 21 and younger who volunteer their time, which
makes their work eligible as community service for listing on their
resume and college and work applications. Those interested should
send an email briefly mentioning their background, interest and
motivation to asoy@12zine.com, including their age, and school as
applicable.
