That being said, when my friend Andrew and I created the site we set out with high hopes. Why? Well, because we wanted to have a really great site for young writers of all ages to go to not only find a supportive community, but a place where they could receive constructive critiques on their work from people the same age. And YWO has delivered such a place.
But YWO is going to a place not a lot of sites have gone before, at least not successfully. And we're taking it very seriously.
I give you Survival By Storytelling Magazine (or SBS Magazine for short). Anything and everything you need to know about submission guidelines can be found here (these will eventually be moving once we upgrade YWO and add a new page specifically for magazine things). There is also a discussion thread here where you can post questions, comments, etc. (you have to be a member, obviously). The magazine will publish fiction, poetry, and small one act plays by writers of various ages in any genre. There will be some contests held in the near future as well (two or three of them, actually).
Feel free to spread the news about this! I look forward to seeing submissions from our members too! And if you'd like to join YWO, we 'd be glad to have you!
