Launch date: Thursday the 23rd July, 2020 at 7pm
Paper Lanterns is a new literary journal, founded in 2020 by Grace Kelley, Ruth Ennis, and Amy O’Sullivan, to be published four times a year. Acting as a platform to promote the voices of young people in Ireland and across the world, this journal provides new and exciting content for a teen and young adult audience. It is also perfect for enthusiasts of teen and YA literature, from teachers and librarians, to parents and youth workers.
The journal is divided into three sections. Our Creative Writing section showcases work from talented teens, as well as work from adult writers of teen and YA literature, tied in with beautiful artwork and photography. The Features and Articles section includes unique essays on trends in the YA literary scene and inspiring observations from our younger contributors on the world around them. You can also expect some exciting interviews from authors and literature enthusiasts. Our Reviews sections offers an insight into the latest books for teens and young adults, from readers younger and older, with a helpful guide to aid in navigating suitable content. You will also find details of our seasonal book club, with Flying Tips for Flightless Birds for younger teens and Queen of Coin and Whispers for older teens.
They are hosting an online launch for issue two on their YouTube channel this coming Thursday the 23rd of July at 7pm, with readings and discussions from their contributors. For more information, please visit paperlanternslit.com or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
