Help Us Spread the YARN

Are you an avid YA reader?

Do you already spread a copious amount of your virtual  existence on social media?

Why not help us spread the YARN by joining our social media team!

We are actively seeking enthusiastic and informed YA lovers for our Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr social platforms.

Here are the parameters:

Facebook would require a monthly dedication of just a week. You would be rotating with two other staffers.  

Twitter would require an commitment of just one day a week – most likely Wednesdays. You would be tweeting with four other staffers.

Tumblr would require the most dedication as you would be managing the page on your own. However, this also means you have more creative license when it comes to the presentation of the page.

If you’re interested please send an email to editors at with a brief, personal cover letter in the body of the email (including why you would like the position) and your most recent CV. Please specify which position/s (Yes, you can apply for more than one.) you are interested in and please title the subject: YARN Social Media Position – 2018. We will be accepting applicants from May 1st to May 15th. 

If you have any specific queries, you can also send an email or ask us via Twitter!

Please be aware that these are non-paying positions as are all YARN positions. But, I can assure you, the experience will certainly reap its rewards in the future as it has for many former YARN staffers.

Looking forward to seeing you in our inbox!

What Is YARN?

It's a brilliant thing to have a place where you can read fresh original short stories by both seasoned YA authors and aspiring teens. YARN is a great tool box for growing up writing. - Cecil Castellucci

Imagine. Envision. Write. Revise. Submit. Read.

YARN is an award-winning literary journal that publishes outstanding original short fiction, poetry, and essays for Young Adult readers, written by the writers you know and love, as well as fresh new voices...including teens.

We also believe in feedback, which is why we encourage readers to post comments on pieces that inspire thought, emotion, laughter...or whatever.

So. What's your YARN?
