WHO ARE WE?
Welcome! We are The Global Youth Review, an upcoming international literary magazine hoping to amplify the voices of marginalized communities through creative art forms. Inspired by the unrest in cities caused by the spread of hegemonic narratives, we young individuals decided to found a literary magazine to uplift intersectional voices and spread cultural awareness. Using words as a vehicle with which we unify and empower young voices, our mission is to combat divisive narratives and bridge cultures, people, and ideas together.
Currently, we are accepting submissions for all mediums of art, including visual art, non-fiction writing, spoken-word poetry, written poetry, memoirs, fictional writing, and more. Every issue published centers around a specific social issue we wish to combat, usually one that is fitting to the current political atmosphere. For example, our first issue focuses on themes of self-expression, in line with the upcoming LGBTQ+ Awareness Month. We view words as a powerful tool one can utilize to amplify their voices and bridge cross-cultural divides amongst people. Celebrating excellence in writing and art, The Global Youth Review seeks to display the very voices that will drive our generation forward and empower these individuals through creative expression.
