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 in early January, 2020!
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!
fALL 2020 Call for entries:
For volume 2, share your writing and art that can relate to underrepresentation in life, different fields, discrimination, racial gap, gender gap, inaccessibility... Does your character feel misunderstood or outnumbered? Are you able to portray this type of feeling using words or art? How might you be able to portray loneliness, standing out from other people?
Our themes are completely up to student interpretation, you may use it to any extent! Following the theme is fully optional but of course, we recommend you try something new.
