We are a team of writers and parents reliving the best parts of our childhood by creating responsible and fun content for readers between the ages of 8-14 years. The mission we are on through Owliver is to create a generation of thinkers who make informed decisions.
Young readers don’t consume news the same way adults do, and there is a need for a platform that speaks their language, on their terms. Owliver’s Post is a place for anyone to explore and engage curiously.
With news becoming increasingly polarized, it is getting harder to find a space that is balanced and resourceful, and where it is safe to ask questions. Even the education system encourages rote learning, as opposed to developing critical thinking and engaging students through the real world.
Team Owliver has writers, designers, illustrators, and entrepreneurs who have a combined experience of 60 years and we are on a mission to create a magazine that enables young readers and explorers to learn and engage. Please feel free to contact us here
