YM is a magazine for new readers and writers of poetry. Each edition showcases poetry written by Poetry Society Youth Members and/or subscribers of the Young Poets Network, alongside articles by a mixture of established poets and young writers. Each issue has a different guest editor: a young poet who chooses the theme for the edition and selects the work to be included.
This e-magazine was made possible by funding from the Foyle Foundation.
