Young writers whose voices captured the attention of the world.

When Kate Bush released her ground-breaking debut album, 1978’s The Kick Inside, she was only 19 years old. In 1984, Of a Boy and The Children of the King author Sonya Hartnett published her first book, Trouble All the Way – she was just 16 years old. And S E Hinton started writing The Outsiders when she was only 15 years old. The message: just because they’re young doesn’t mean they don’t have much to say. Here are some youthful voices that demand to be heard.
