...that thing that repeats itself.

Words, Rhymes & Life was born in 2015, so it’s technically a product of Gen Z. (Gen Ai? Whatever they’re calling it.)

And yet it’s an organization parented by Millennials who dare to resist the criticisms levelled at our existence: that we’re narcissistic, tech-obsessed, overly sensitive, irresponsible career hoppers who won’t own homes and do the things we’re supposed to do to prove we’re actual people.

The truth is, we were never supposed to be “actual” people.

We belong to a generation raised with highly sophisticated advertising and we’re now deeply concerned about the next generation being raised with even more sophisticated advertising. We can’t help but think of reading and writing as countercultural acts to help us regain perspective, to help us determine the difference between what’s genuine and what’s artificial, to help us restore a declining art form that has the power to change hearts and minds.

All lit enthusiasts are welcome to join in on the fun, but we’re primarily interested in young adults who were never encouraged to read/write, young adults who are just getting into reading/writing adult fiction, and young adults who feel excluded from literary communities because of socio-economic barriers.

We hope to inspire and encourage a whole new generation of readers and build audiences in communities that publishers have never dared to venture into, and in so doing, to diversify cultural contributions in our local community, finally giving voice to those who have been excluded from the narrative for too long.
