About Us

The youth is the future

The Young Eager Writers Journal is a home for inspiration, innovation, and voices of all kinds. At YEW, we aim for inclusivity and strive to publish work by talented, earnest, and daring young writers. Our team of young editors and writers operates this literary journal with the mission to create the spaces they wish to see within the literary world.


Our Story

The Young Eager Writers Association, founded by Desiree Brown, provides resources, opportunities, and networks to young writers. The YEW Journal was established in July 2021, but its idea was born in 2018. The original vision was to exclusively publish work by young writers who attended the association's annual writing conference, but that vision soon expanded. With Desiree's drive, Damien Holland's brilliance, and a dedicated team, The YEW Journal now serves the youth writing community.
