Youth Shades is an online, international and monthly magazine, which explores sociocultural issues through spheres of literary genres such as fiction (poetry and stories), non-fiction (essays, opinion pieces/articles and memoirs and reviews), Arts and Skills (virtual arts, paintings, abstract illustrations, drawings, cartoons, make overs, fashion designs, and photography).
We also have an Arts & Skills segment features works in the trend of Visual Arts – paintings, abstract illustrations, drawings, etc. – which reflect societal colourations of cultures, people and places. To be celebrated in this sect are exhibitions of creativities, especially those with diversities creatively put together. By creativity, we mean skills including Make Overs, Fashion Designs, and Photography.
80% of the target audiences are the youths; such is expedient owing to the observed rapid derailing exuberance among that sect of persons. Youth Shades Magazine is therefore aimed at exposing and condemning societal ills while attempting to curb such on the one hand, and on the other hand, celebrating virtues against vices. Another objective of Youth Shades Magazine is to bridge geographical gaps between continents.
The Magazine is a platform for established and upcoming writers and artists to display their talents. We only publish original contents that have never been published elsewhere. Youth Shades Magazine is available for free download in PDF and audio-visual formats.
Youth Shades Magazine publishes its issue on the 1st of every month. You can read features daily on our blog. We are here to stay, and we wish you a happy reading.
