About YAmmering

Welcome to YAmmering! Our mission statement is to talk persistently and, often loudly, about young adult and children's fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, illustrations, and authors. 

Your generous support means we can pay our contributors for their amazing work and bring you a collection of the highest quality children's writing on the web.

But YAmmering isn't just for kids. It's for anyone who remembers their perfect summer hangout spot, is confused about relationships, or has lost something as important as a friend. Our writers are students, teachers, and artists from all over the country and range in age from eight to as "old" as 35.

Want to become a contributor? Email your work to [email protected] for consideration. We pay $25 for fiction and nonfiction and $10 for poetry and illustrations. 

Thank you for joining us today. YAmmering appreciates your comments, insight, contributions, and patronage.
$0 of $1,000 per month
When I reach $1000 per month, I'll start a special podcast series where I interview one patron every month.
