Submit student works for publication

MONROE - Students ages 4K through high school in The Monroe Times' coverage area can submit their original writing or artwork for publication on our new Student Notebook page.

Writing submissions could include short stories, essays, poetry or works of nonfiction. Drawings, paintings or photographs or other two-dimensional artwork will be accepted, provided it can be scanned and reproduced. Photos of three-dimensional artwork, such as sculpture or pottery, will also be accepted. All photos should be submitted at 300 dpi and sized to 5 by 7 inches to ensure quality reproduction.

Submissions can be something created for a school, 4H or other organization, or something the student created just for fun. The only requirement is that the piece is original. Group projects will be accepted if each contributor is credited.

Email submissions to Mary Jane Grenzow, editor of The Monroe Times, at

Submissions will be published on Tuesdays as space allows. Submissions cannot be returned, so please send digital or photocopies of work.

All submissions should include the artist's first and last name; hometown; and age or year in school. Please include a phone number (not for publication) in case we have to contact you. Submissions from those under 18 should also include a note from a parent stating they give permission for the work to be published.
