LitMag 2024

About This Project

Submit your original short story, poem, and/or artwork for a chance to be featured in LitMag, the Osceola Literary Magazine. This year's theme is Unlikely Friendships!  Let's explore unlikely friendships! Maybe you've seen two unlikely animal pals, read stories of celebrity "frenemies" who are actually "besties," or saw a chance meeting that turned into a special relationship.  Use your wonderful imagination or scenes from your own life to tell your tale through stories, poetry, or art. Open to kids and teens ages 8 to 17.
