YZ (pronounced “wise") Literature is wisdom from the young, Generations Y and Z to be more specific. This isn’t your basic news.
YZ Literature is the art, songs, poems, prayers, letters, stories, thoughts, and more, of young people shining, witnessing, and reflecting light. It's not necessarily just for young people, rather it’s by young people who are not only the future but also bearers of Good News today.
