ICE LOLLY REVIEW
A Literary Magazine by the Youth and for the Youth
Our name is based on summer sticky fingers and sweet syrup. It's the way the saccharine liquid molds to your teeth and coats your tongue in vibrant colors. It's the feeling of ice underneath plastic and the sharp twinge of coldness against teeth. Give us the sourness, flavors, and shapes. Give us the swirls and textures. Give us works in shades of red, purple, pink, and blue. Give us works that stain our tongue and leave us begging for another taste.
The Ice Lolly Review was founded on a hot August day in 2020. We are a non-profit online magazine and our purpose is to provide young writing enthusiasts everywhere with a platform and a spotlight to recognize creative and powerful pieces. As writers ourselves we understand the impact recognition and appreciation have had on our own writing journeys. Our purpose is to uplift young writers and encourage them. We look for works that "stick" to us and have a distinct flavour. We accept submissions in different languages and we also nominate pieces for "Best of the Net" because we believe writers deserve as much recognition as possible. We accept pieces from writers ages 12-26. We also take pride in our three-day response rate.
