Applications are now open for the 2021-22 Peach Seed Apprenticeship for Emerging Editors, our annual editorial program for teens entering their senior year of high school. We give our Peach Seeds total creative freedom to develop their editorial skills by curating our online journal's monthly Seeds feature with work by poets, writers, and visual artists aged 12 to 18. From September 2021 to June 2022, Peach Seeds will read and respond to submissions from young writers and artists during our magazine's open reading periods, work with young writers and artists to refine their work, and occasionally book teen creatives to perform at our Episodes Reading Series.
To apply, please fill out this Google Form by Friday, June 18, 2021. In addition to general contact and personal information, you will be asked to enter:
Resume: A simple document outlining any work experience or extracurricular activities in which you've been involved throughout your high school experience. These do not need to be directly through your school.
Writing sample: This program is geared toward young poets and writers. Please upload either 3-5 poems, one short story, or one piece of creative nonfiction all in one document.
Why do you want to be our next Peach Seed? Don't overthink it; in one paragraph, tell us what working on a magazine, learning how to edit work, and/or uplifting other young creative people would mean to you.
Anything else you want us to know about you!
Applicants will be contacted in July. For questions, reach out to Rachelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
