Born in 1996, Young STAR is the youth publication of The Philippine STAR. The weekly newspaper section has introduced many of today’s best writers and editors from seminal voices like Jessica Zafra, Raymond Ang and Celine Lopez and multi-disciplinary forces like Erwin Romulo, Paolo Lorenzana and Christopher de Venecia.
Young STAR has always been about promoting and empowering youth culture. We share raw, and honest stories from kids who do passionate work. Our bimonthly online zine, The Youth is On Fire, is a submissions-based zine that serves as a creative platform and outlet for those who are starting out.
