the Blissful pursuit
Hi everyone! I'm Anusha, and I'm the editor of The Blissful Pursuit, the online magazine. The idea behind this magazine is to give a voice to teenagers, with their young adult words, thoughts and artwork, to pursue a better society.
Personally, I've been involved with writing for many years now, reaching a national medal in Scholastic Art and Writing Awards as well as a few Gold Keys and publications. I always found that young writer publications could be hard to find... Over the years I’ve realized that there needs to be a forum for us teenagers where our thoughts can be heard, our strengths are treasured, and we are cherished for who we are. So came The Blissful Pursuit!
I am very excited to have started this magazine and look forward to receiving your entries. We will offer awards and prizes for the best entry in each genre so send us your best work!
Call for entries for winter 2022:

We thought for some time to come up with a theme for this very special issue. Why special, you ask?
Well, we all just came out of the pandemic, well at least with masks! How has your world changed during these intense 16 months? How was your life before the pandemic shut everything down? What does it feel like now? Did your family grow or did you suffer terrible loss and are still processing it? There is no particular guideline for the type of writing or art to be submitted, simply submit any work that demonstrates something you would like to show the world, use your voice to portray anything you feel is important or beautiful or write or draw if you just need an outlet.
Share anything your heart (and voice) desires!
