Youth Shades Magazine welcomes content from around the globe. It features fiction (poetry, plays and stories), non-fiction (reviews, essays, opinion pieces/articles, SOS and memoirs), Arts and Skills (virtual arts, paintings, abstract illustrations, drawings, cartoons, make overs, fashion designs, and photography). Your piece must be highly original and never published elsewhere. We love pieces with mind-blowing twists as those are the ones that are likely to get published.
The subject of the email should be in CAPS LOCK – (CATEGORY OF YOUR SUBMISSION, ISSUE OF THE MAGAZINE, THEME OF THE ISSUE, YOUR NAME AND COUNTRY). The title of your piece should be in the attachment
Please, do not send more than two scripts at a time and each script should not be more than two A4 pages.
Our 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. We love good laughs; if you can create good jokes, send to us and we will you as well.
Please, do not send more than four A4 pages of Arts & Skills at a time. If it is a serial art/illustration, it should not be more than twelve A4 pages (in such case, it will be published in parts). Attach your works as high-resolution files. Abide by the submission format and title your Arts & Skills accordingly.
Do you have a personal story you want to share with the world? Is there something bothering you and you need someone to offer you words of consolation? Send your story to us, and the world will hear you. Anonymous or not, that’s something for you to decide.
