Submissions were sent.

Stories were compiled and read by our readers.

Laughter, giggles, and snorts ensued.

Choices were narrowed down.

Nisha Sharma selected the three best pieces.

Which means…

The time has finally come to share the results of our FIRST EVER Fiction Humor Contest!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit a story. Humor is not an easy art form. It takes timing, ingenuity, and thinking way out of the box. We were beyond impressed by what came our way.

Without further ado:

Winner: “Tequila” – Laura Gonzalez

Runner-up: “Citrus and Ash” – Miranda Sun

Runner-up: “The Day I had my Oatmeal Privileges Revoked” – Audry Dubois

We will hopefully be publishing these stories during our off-season – so you can have a few good laugh during these summer months –  so keep an eye on the website and on social media.

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?

Vocab Conundrum?

Highlight a word, click the "?," and quench your curiosity. How about "hibernaculum?" Go ahead, try it!
