Poets & Writers is pleased to provide free subscriptions to Poets & Writers Magazine to award-winning young writers and to high school creative writing teachers for use in their classrooms.

Poets & Writers Magazine has been a trusted companion to generations of writers. Its pages are filled with guidance about how to get published and promote your work, essays on the literary life, interviews with leading authors, insight from agents and editors, and more. We’re excited to encourage the next generation!


Organizations and schools that sponsor youth creative writing awards are invited to request free subscriptions for their award recipients. In addition, eleventh and twelfth grade creative writing teachers are invited to request a free subscription for classroom use. We will fulfill requests on a first-come first-served basis, up to a maximum of 250 per year.
