The Best Young Writers On The Internet

edit talent

Has there ever been a time when more great writing was popping up all over the place?

(And read by folks all over the world; thanks Longreads, Longform.org, and the rest!)

Much of it is penned by young writers.

We asked friends in the media industry for their thoughts on up and coming talent that remains under the radar.

With apologies to Brian Stelter, Foster Kamer, the Mollys, and plenty of other young writers you already know, we offer up some talent you may be overlooking.

Enjoy, then go read.

(And tell us who we missed.)
