Let the Humor Begin!

It’s May 1st, and you know what that means?

We celebrate the 66th anniversary of the introduction of Mr. Potato Head!

Okay, no. We don’t, though it should be a widely celebrated occasion.

Instead, we’re announcing the start of our Humor Fiction Contest with guest judge, the hilarious, talented, #YARNAlum and debut YAlit author, Nisha Sharma.

You can find all the details and guidelines of the contest here!

You have until May 31st to make us chortle, giggle, cackle, and belly laugh.

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?
