Youth voices matter. Get published today !

 

IARS is organizing a writing competition as part of the Community Outreach to contribute to the intellectual outputs of the Youth Empowerment and Innovation Project (YEIP).   We are interested in broadcasting European voices of young people, focusing on the topics that matter to them.   YEIP aims to tackle radicalisation through youth empowerment and social inclusion. 

All articles that meet our editorial guidelines will be published in the youth-led magazine 99% .

You can write about any angle that you want but you will have more chances to get published if you cover a topic that hasn’t been covered. 

 We are specially interested in the topics below 

LGBT +  issues 

*Social enterprise and young people 

*Fight against violence on young children 

 

The following topics have ALREADY been allocated to a young writer and therefore would not want to repeat

Youth radicalisation and social media’ Yewande Ogunjimi (UK/Nigeria) and Amanda Blackhurst (USA) 
‘Cyberbullying and online youth radicalization’ Theoni Spathi  (Greece) 
‘Christian white supremacist and youth radicalisation’  Ama Yarboi (USA/Ghana)

We want to give you as few guidelines as possible, but you should take the following into account: 

Format: Please submit your document in google docs and allow the following email to be an editor. r.lopez@iars.org.uk.  If you would rather not receive any feedback and submit it independently for consideration please send it as an attachment to the same email address. 

For information on abstracts click here You won’t be writing a thesis so you don’t need to specify methodology.

In terms of the length of the article, we are aware these are complex issues but the general guideline is ‘less is more’. After the first draft, we can discuss the specific length of your article. 

Content: 

We are more interested in balanced reports but we also value bold, opinionated pieces that can be made easily understandable to anyone. Please add footnotes of the sources of information when you make a statement and make a clear distinction between a fact / general trend and a personal viewpoint.  We will not accept submissions containing offensive or discriminatory content or language.  IARS  as the editor reserves the right to correct spelling mistakes and minor style editions, if more substantial changes need to be done, the authors will be consulted. 

If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact r.lopez@iars.org.uk
