New Year: New YEW!


Serah Jacob

Poetry Lead Editor

Jessica Stiehm has a BA in creative writing from the University of North Carolina in Asheville. She has edited for the Young Eager Writer Beta Reader Program and is the poetry lead editor. Her dream is to write a sapphic southern gothic romance novel, and to learn how to bake bread finally.

Faithful readers may know about our parent site’s blog, so we’re excited to announce that we’re launching our own! Our aim is to release biweekly articles, listicles, interviews, or reviews about hot topics for any young eager writer.

Who are we? We’re the Journal Team for YEW.

We aim to publish voices that often get overlooked in the literary industry due to inexperience.

Our blog team is run by young writers, for young writers. We know better than anyone how hard it is to get started in the writing world.

What it's like to submit a piece you are proud of.
What it’s like to get rejected.
What it’s like to get published for the first time.
We know what it’s like to be a young writer.

Our goal is to build a community that fosters creativity and artistry. Get involved with us, and comment on what you like or don’t like.

Leave us reviews on our site, DM us on Instagram @theyewjournal, or email us at

Let us write for you.
