Slick Magazine

Submit

If you are a current Huntington Beach High School student and are interested in submitting your original fiction, creative nonfiction, short screenplay, poetry, photography, paintings, sketches, or other works of art, we encourage you to submit your work for the Literary Arts section of our online publication. We are looking for pieces that move our readers and capture the culture and voices of Huntington Beach students.

Our submission window is open October through May.

Please submit your work to this Google Form. You may submit up to three pieces at a time for consideration. By submitting to Slick, you agree that the work you submit is your original work. The form will ask you for your name, grade, student ID number, a short bio, and descriptions of your art and/or writing. 

Your work will be read and reviewed by the Slick editors and staff. Selected artists will be invited to meet with our student editors and arts directors in order to review any edits and plan the presentation of pieces on the site.

If you have any questions that were not addressed on this page, please feel free to contact the editors of Slick here: [email protected].
