Do you have something to say, art to show or questions to ask?

Young people on the Northern Rivers who have a point to make, have taken a photo or created artwork or have a question to ask are being sought. Rewire is a brand new youth governed magazine that is launching and they are looking for contributors.

If you are aged between 13 and 26 you can submit your work for potential inclusion in the magazine, you just have to have it in by 15 July. They are looking for submissions of written articles, poems, and photographs of a diverse range of art works.

‘This has been such a fun project already,’ says Anoushka Blake, who is working with Lae-Ella Sinniah and Bella Zanotti as the founder members of the Rewire Magazine.

‘We have been having regular zoom meetings with Lisa Apostolides, the project manager and director of Byron Youth Theatre, and now we are working face to face to get Rewire up and running.’

They will be producing quarterly editions with sections such as global issues, poetry, youth opportunities,’lessons I’ve learnt’ and key themed articles.

‘We’re also keen to receive jpegs of art works such as paintings, drawings, sculptures, fashion designs, collages and photography. A section, ‘Dear Charlie’, will also provide an opportunity for youth to ask questions on issues that concern them,’ said Anoushka.

Lae-Ella and Bella have been busy creating social media platforms under the guidance of Nigel Haslam where you can find out more details and submit your work.

They are still keen to get stories, both big and small, submitted so if you have an idea you’ve been wanting to express, raise, or talk about then now is the time to get it out there.

Rewire’s initial run has been funded by a Small Change Grant for Young People from Byron Council and the plan is to distribute Rewire throughout local schools, cafes and other locaitons.
