Why should I submit my work?

Community and Networking 

  • Through submitting your work, you are contributing to a larger creative entity where your work will be shared next to other youth creators. 

Because you can make this experience your own!

  • As a creative community, we love giving our youth creators complete creative freedom to make their experience worthwhile. So while you are just submitted work through a google form, it could be so much more if that is something you crave!

  • This initiative allows for you to become as engaged as you’d like in the community - this includes engaging with our audience to share the inspiration behind your work, speaking about your creative journey or simply having a conversation with other youth creators!

this piece is dedicated to my family. to my two beautiful brothers, my resilient mother and my equitable father, your lives matter. when the world looks at you, they may see threats. when I look at you, I see strength, light, potential, and love. and to my many black brothers and sisters whose blood I may not share biologically but whose pain I carry on my back daily, do not stop using your voice. there is a light at the end of this tunnel. black lives did, do, and always will, MATTER.
