Young Adulting Review was founded in 2019 at the UBC School of Creative Writing as a place for thoughtful, serious discussion of books for children and young adults. Over the last three years, we’ve published hundreds of reviews, author interviews, and news breakdowns, and have brought countless new critical voices to the Canadian children’s literature scene. Our reviews have been read and shared by authors and readers around the world, and our site draws thousands of visitors every year. 

Now entering our fourth year, Young Adulting Review is expanding our scope. We noticed a gap in the publishing sphere: While there are many places to submit and publish short literary fiction online, very few such places exist for short fiction for children and young adults. That’s why Young Adulting Review is thrilled to announced that we now accepting fiction submissions! 

Bring us your best short stories for children and young adults: your magic and whimsy, your heartbreak and your joy. We can’t wait to go on this journey with you.
