Here at Youth Inc, we consider April THE month for humour. Starting with April Fool’s Day and ending with the summer holidays, April is the right time to kick back and relax with some good japes, be it in the form of pranks or jokes. To celebrate this month of comedy, we present a collection of short writing to you, both fiction and non-fiction, by the Youth Inc team and guest writers.
