More About the Contest

We are so excited about and invested in expanding our collaborative publishing model and see this as the next step in really fleshing out what we set out to do when we started 5Q in 2012. Not only will young readers have the opportunity to work with professional manuscripts, choose the winning manuscripts, and help with production and marketing efforts, but also the entire process will function as a 2-week publishing course at Newark Academy in May. The course will expose students to contemporary work by emerging writers and the current publishing landscape. This educational component is integral to reaching our mission: introduce fresh perspectives, diversify the face of publishing, and encourage an expanding literary community.
