More exciting masthead news!  In addition to adding the amazing Laura Williams McCaffrey as Fiction Editor, Kerri is going to take a sabbatical as Editor in Chief for the 2016-2017 publication year, and our fabulous Poetry Editor Kip Wilson Rechea will be the acting Editor in Chief!  Kerri will be staying on as Essays editor for the year, so she’s not going anywhere, and don’t worry–nothing is wrong with her or YARN.  But she’s been doing the EiC thing for close to eight years and needs a little break to work on her writing and other projects.

YARN will be in excellent hands–Kip is a highly experienced editor and writer who knows YARN inside and out after being on staff for close to two years.  And our journal will really benefit from a fresh set of eyes looking at the overall publication.  Fresh eyes mean fresh ideas and fresh perspectives.  That’s extremely important in this ever-changing YA landscape.

If you want to be reminded more about Kip, check out the masthead.  And when you want fresh YARN and YA news, don’t forget that while we’re taking a break on pubbing new short stories, essays, and poetry, we’re still live on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.  See you there!

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
