SAY what?

Since 1997, Stanford Anthology for Youth has published an annual literary and artistic review of work by Bay Area middle school students.

We give young writers and artists the opportunity to hone, revise, and publish their best work. Most of all, we aim to spark conversation between students, parents, and teachers about the things that are most important to them.
