Markham Youth Magazine

The Markham Youth Magazine (or MYM) is a place for you to Make Your Mark. As a youth-led magazine, we want to create a platform for Markham youth, aged 10-18, to showcase their creative works, from writing to visual art - in other words, MYM is for youth, by youth. Our principles include promoting diversity, encouraging young local talent, and making sure that everyone has their voice heard! Now accepting submissions.
