Youth matter and their voices matter. At Novelly, they’re taking control of the narrative. We publish literature by youth that reflect the experiences of diverse young people today and the issues they care about.
Stories have power. The stories we read shape the way we see ourselves and the way we see each other.
To celebrate National Poetry Month in April, we're hosting LISTEN, a spoken word contest that recognizes diverse, up-and-coming and talented teenagers who can use the medium of poetry to deeply explore identity and start conversations about important social issues.
To enter, students must be ages 13-18 and living in the United States or Canada. You do not need to have previous experience in spoken word performance. Winners will participate in an exclusive mentorship session with the judges, get published on the Novelly website, and receive a gift package in the mail! Entries must be submitted by 11:59 pm PST on April 20, 2022.Get the Application
When you’re ready to grow as a reader and a leader, we have programs to help you on your journey.
