REALM is a program sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) to publicly recognize excellent literary magazines produced by students with the support of their teachers. REALM is designed to encourage all schools to develop literary magazines that celebrate the art and craft of writing.
This student literary magazine program is open to all US accredited middle schools and secondary schools throughout the United States, US territories, Canada, and American schools abroad. The magazines submitted must have been published between September of last year and June of this year. Elementary magazines are accepted but will be judged by the middle school rubric. Digital versions are welcomed.
Deadline: Applications for the 2023 contest will be open from May 1, 2023, to July 31, 2023. Results will be announced in January and posted on the NCTE website.
