We ask that narratives be between 500 and 1,500 words, with up to five narratives per submission. Please submit all narratives in one document and include publication information for any previously published material.

Our greatest need is for higher level (high school) narrative texts that contain testable literary elements such as strong character development, themes, and symbols. We also welcome narrative texts intended for younger grades. Overall, we look for texts that exemplify quality writing and an engaging storyline. While we seek narratives with tension and plot, submissions do not necessarily need to contain a complete story arc.

All submissions must be appropriate for testing. Submissions that include inappropriate language or references to drugs, sex, alcohol, gambling, holidays, religion, or violence will not be considered.

Please include details of any affiliation with the University of Kansas in your submission bio.
