CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Lost Souls is a memorial to each of us who have lost someone close to our hearts. It is our most sincere hope that through our work at Lost Souls, we may reach out to others who are walking the paths that we once walked, and let them know that they are not alone.
Lost Souls is an electronic publication that seeks to promote understanding of the issues and concerns of late teen and young adults, 16+, by sharing life experiences. We do not discriminate against race, gender, life-style or religious/spiritual affiliation. We believe that it is our differences that bring us together. Our goal is to connect people who have found alternative ways of addressing the problems of young adulthood. How teens and young adults deal with parental abuse, divorce, issues of death and suicide among family or friends, relationships, social bullying and other forms of discrimination. These are some examples of what we are looking for. If you have any ideas for work that would suit our publication but has not been mentioned above, feel free to submit a proposal.
We are currently accepting submissions for our first release. We welcome poetry, personal essays and research articles. We are also looking for feature writers. Please be advised that this is our first launch, and we cannot offer payment at this time. If you are interested, please see the guidelines below, for more information.
Poetry: please submit no more than 3-5 poems per submission.
Essays: Personal essays, life experiences under 2000 words.

Advice Columns: we are looking for advice and recommendations for young adults in religious and LGBT communities. Please also keep in mind that the target audience for this publication is 16+, that means content should be age appropriate.
