The Claremont Review is one of the oldest literary publications in existence. It has become the favorite avenue of aspiring writers and artists to have their works published and enjoyed by an international audience. To date, they have featured writers from almost every English speaking country around the world from Canada to the United States, Africa, Australia, Asia and Europe.
The Claremont Review was conceptualized after a team of young individuals realized that young writers find it a challenge to have their works noticed by the general public. They are usually shunned in favor of adult artists who many deem are capable of coming up with the pieces that the public would love. But what many failed to see is that the youth can equally deliver. Their innocence, honesty and concept about the world as a whole allow them to deliver enchanting pieces. This gap was filled by The Claremont Review in 1992 when it opened its doors to all young writers and artists aged 13 to 19 years old.
The literary journal publishes all types of work, from poetry and short stories to short plays, photography and visual arts. There’s no specific theme required but they encourage writers and artists to focus on showing the real side of the human condition.
