MFA Grad Launches Young Adult Literary Magazine

The Solstice Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing Program of Pine Manor College is proud to announce that Solstice graduate Hannah Goodman has launched a new online literary journal, Sucker Literary Magazine, featuring fiction for young adult readers.

On graduating from the Solstice MFA Program, Ms. Goodman found that very few literary journals were publishing work by writers whose work is for teens, and she and her fellow graduates had written stories that were ready to send out into the world. A busy mother of two with her own business, Ms. Goodman nonetheless decided to take a big step toward addressing that problem by launching a journal of her own.

And so, Sucker Literary Magazine was created: a magazine where raw, undiscovered, talented writers for young adults have the opportunity to strut their stuff. As Ms. Goodman writes on the magazine’s site: “Bring on your skateboarding vampires, angst ridden, nerd-boy who has never been kissed, or girl crushing on her best friend (be it girl or boy).”
