Launching in the Fall of 2023!
Youth Voices for Nature is a Tiny Seed Press initiative we will launch in 2023 that provides youth the opportunity to create their own nature-inspired writing, poetry, and art. This project will partner with public libraries to encourage children and young adults to connect with nature. In addition, we will offer an internship program for young adults interested in learning about the editorial process so they can develop publication skills.
By publishing youth voices for nature, we will inspire future generations to conserve our natural world.
Mission Statement: We support youth voices for nature by creating a welcoming and professional publishing press that empowers, inspires, and educates young writers and artists to reflect on and share their appreciation and wonder of the natural world.
Values Statement: We value inclusivity by honoring every individual and their various ways of expressing their appreciation of nature.
