Young Creative Press was established in 2019 by Melissa Young, who to this day is the sole writer for the site. The Brighton based blog has recently re-branded from a music blog to variety content. Young Creative Press features unsigned artists and YA literature.
Starting out as a university project Young Creative Press has grown massively since its founding in 2019 and now has over 920 subscribers.
The choice to change to variety content was not one that was made easily. Without knowing whether people would be interested in a site that talks about both music and books, it was a real shot in the dark for whether the site would be appealing.
Fast-forward to 2020 and Young Creative Press has gone from posting once a week to working towards five.
