Description: It's Lit(erary) was born in 2020, as a dlr Libraries offering to teens who were stuck at home. It grew from a book recommendation blog to two videos with Irish YA writers. Now, it is a collaboration between Fighting Words, dlr Libraries, local schools and local young people. In this third issue, young people have shared their short stories, poetry, raps and art to celebrate Young Adult voices but also to discuss what change means to them. There are many topics that arose during the workshops - from climate change, housing crisis, to inflation. Their awareness is striking.
