STIRLING teenager Muiz Murad (17) is one of 13 young people involved in launching a youth-run magazine.

Young Scandal magazine contains written and artistic work by youths across the Perth metropolitan and Esperance regions.

“The idea of the magazine came about when Orla Latawski, the magazine’s founder and now chief editor, noticed a lack of youth media being published and wanted to create a new way of addressing these issues,” he said.

“She decided that if existing publications weren’t going to provide this opportunity for young people then young people themselves would have to think of a solution, which led to the creation of the Young Scandal magazine.”

Muiz said contributors were aged between 14 and 21 to provide a “true glimpse of being a youth”.

Young Scandal magazine is a compilation of written and artistic work designed to give a unique insight into what it means to be a young person living right here in WA,” he said.
