Teen(ish) Literary Magazine
Submissions are now open for the second edition of the Teen Literary Magazine, produced in collaboration with Delta County Libraries! Writers in grades 6-12 are invited to submit poetry, fiction, personal essays, and comics anytime between January 1, 2022 and April 1, 2022.
Email submissions and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. The magazine is for teens, edited by teens, and we plan to celebrate publication in summer 2022.

TAB (Teen Advisory Board)
The Montrose Library’s Teen Advisory Board is chance to connect and influence decision-making in the library!
TAB members currently lead a redesign of the teen space in the library, plan and help run programming for teens (like trivia and game nights), and advise library staff on decisions that impact teens in the library and the community. TAB is a good way to accumulate volunteer hours, beef up your resume, and meet other bookish teens. Attendance at all meetings is not mandatory – come to as many as you can.
Email Amy D. at email@example.com or text her at 970-275-9383 for info on how to join.
