About YRC

What’s is Young Reader Club Magazine?

The Young Reader Club is a bi-monthly magazine for kids and teens aged 8 to 16 years old, which aims to build the next generation of writers and thinkers by providing them with a fresh perspective on writing, literature and creativity.

With the purpose of being a voice and a platform for under-18 year olds, YRC works on incorporating social awareness and strengthening confidence in Asia’s literary market by helping spread the ideal that kids can write, while in the process, building a library of Asian literature through its youth.

What’s in the Young Reader Club Magazine?

Carrying a variety of content, both fun and informative, the magazine is divided into four major departments: Young Authors, Education, Scribbles, and Inspirations.
Young Authors

The magazine highlights its three feature stories of the issue, tinged with Asian flair and appeal. The main pillar of YRC, our feature stories aim is to provide the new, emerging Asian generations with a fresh look at storytelling, as told by other young thinkers. YRC is building a cohesive reading and writing community that supports their peers’ literary pursuits. Be amazed by their insights as our authors bring you on a journey through a variety of literary genres that appeal universally.

We break down the walls of self-doubt that aspiring young writers might have by giving them inspirational interviews from fellow young authors who started as young kids aspiring to get published. Now all grown up, and still writing, find out what gets our young featured authors motivated to continue with their dreams and inspired to write more stories.
