As we often mention, quite a few submissions arrive here at What Youth on a regular basis. It can be very challenging to sort through these prized possessions of the artist who may have sent them to us.
It’s usually obvious that some time and effort went into them.
Sometimes the quality it’s great but the storyline is compelling. Other times it’s very professionally produced but just isn’t a fit for us. The hard part being having to write back and offer some semblance of encouragement while also letting them know we don’t have any use for it.

But maybe we don’t have to?
We simply thought you might enjoy it as we did.
