And all the magic that makes us unique from other journals!
Who is Your Journal Aimed At?
We are looking for all sorts of people, and all sorts of things- specifically youth is important to us, especially high school and college aged students, but we would like to be able to accept work and have readers from a broad spectrum of ages, therefore we have no age limit.
Why is Your Journal Called Paper Trains?
The broad spectrum that encompasses the multitude of events that we write about lead readers on a venturesome journey. Specifically, our name explores the idea that we are humans are all on board the same train, in different cabins, but are headed toward the same end goal: to better understand the human ambitions, to better connect with the people around us, and to gain insight into different societies. We hope to promote the understanding of the vast cultural differences that surround us, to find empathy in what is not ours, and to elevate emerging writers and young authors to levels that give them the confidence to continue writing.
How much does it cost to submit?
Submissions are absolutely free- no strings attached! We currently run on a voluntary basis, therefore we are not charging a reading fee.
