Written By The Youth is an online platform designed to give young writers around the world an opportunity to:
- Publish their written work
- Exchange feedback with like-minded peers
- Participate in the growth of a global community through building connections with fellow aspiring writers!
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to make Written by the Youth an inclusive environment by welcoming perspectives, amplifying voices, and cultivating high quality writing.
What Makes Us Different?
What makes our initiative special is that we’ve strayed away from the contemporary magazine approach; instead, we’re focusing on cultivating an ever-growing collection of writing, thus promoting a diverse portfolio of curated work.
Hey! I’m Ariana!
As an avid writer myself, I’m excited to join Aria in sharing this project with aspiring authors, journalists, poets, and storytellers across the globe. Living internationally has become such a significant facet of my identity, as it’s given me so many opportunities to connect with people from around the world. Hopefully Written by the Youth will do the same for those who not only want a good read, but want to connect with those who share the same passions thousands of miles away.
Hi! I’m Aria!
I’ve been in love with writing since I was young — specifically with poetry and stories. Ariana and I were in the same English class in 10th grade, and through that, we built a friendship over our common love for writing. One night, I texted her, asking her if she would be willing to start a project centred around writing. The product was Written by the Youth. We created this to make a platform — for us to share our own writing, and to give other young writers the same opportunity. I hope that whether you write poems, articles, or stories, or if you prefer just to read, you will enjoy Written by the Youth. Ariana and I poured our hearts into it, and we hope you love it just as much as we do! ❤
