Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a safe and friendly space for young people to connect, debate, explore, and put their writing and creative skills to the test.
We began our journey in the midst of self-isolation, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we will continue to reach out, share, and respond, as the global sands shift.

Who We Are

The Curious Times is a groundbreaking, independent online magazine, by young people, for young people. Our young team of editors live in the UK, but we have writers based all over the world. Our mission is to provide a space where young people can share their ideas, as well as their writing skills. The Curious Times is a platform to amplify the voices of young people, educate, spark curiosity and create positive change in the world. We want to make you feel connected, informed and inspired, and we believe there has never been a greater need to keep in touch than now. If you are 10-16 years old, and want to write for us, create a Curious Portal account and start your journalistic career today! We are in this together! Welcome aboard.
