We are thrilled to announce the creation of Lit!, AYWI’s literary magazine! 

Lit! exists to provide a platform for young writers through opportunities for publication.  We want to encourage young writers both to hone their craft and to share their works and ideas with others.  Lit! is run by a passionate staff composed entirely of AYWI student members who are themselves young writers.

Lit! will include fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction.  Each issue will relate to a theme chosen by our staff.

Our current and previous issues as well as submission guidelines can be found at

Go forth, read, write, and submit! We can’t wait to share your words!
