We're now open for submissions to our 12th series: "Not-so-ancient History"
Fans of Percy Jackson and obscure WWII timelines unite -- we're looking for artwork and writing that deals with the past in fresh new ways. Maybe that means bringing mythological characters into your short story, a la Disney's Mulan; maybe that means finally writing, late at night, that epic essay about the fall of the Ming Dynasty. Don't worry too much about the nitty-gritty of historical events: as always, you can let your imagination run free.
Whatever (or whenever) you choose to focus on, remember to include your name, grade and school, and an (optional) headshot with your piece!
Send your work to YouthReview@emeraldparents.org by Wednesday, June 30th. Thank you for sharing, and we hope you're having an unsurpassable summer!
Our 11th series is here, and the comics and sketches shown here are guaranteed to make you laugh! Or at least forcibly exhale, maybe snort air out your nose.... at the very least a little grimace of mirth.
In the age of TikTok, let these works remind you that humor can still take many forms. Here's to the fresh, sharp voices who contributed to this month's issue!
Greener Grass by Aaron Zhou bustles with barnyard spirit. Run, little chick, run.
Penguin Joke by Justin Lining delivers punny content in a sharp format.
Oh, Romeo by Eva Chen puts a parodic spin on the classic Shakespeare drama.
"That One McDonald's in a Nutshell" by Lucas Zhang is a wild, wild short video. The animated style pops off the screen, and the plot? Well, you'll just have to watch it.
