Welcome to the new year at YARN!  We hope everyone had a restful and productive and delicious holiday season.

We’re excited to be back publishing the best in YA short fiction, poetry, and essays.  We have National Poetry Month to look forward to in April, as well as some truly excellent YA in the hopper, a few by some names you know… But I don’t want to give away too much!

The start of a new year is a good time to start new projects, and return to abandoned ones with fresh eyes and ideas.  What are you working on in 2014?  What’s your YARN?  We really want to know, and we hope you’re send us your best writing, but also chat with us in the Comments, as well as on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook. We love hearing from you, Readers!

Hope to see more of you in 2104.
