Maladnyak is the first professional community of writers of the 1920s, its activities significantly influenced the development of the Belarusian literature. The association was established in 1923 as a group of young poets in the magazine of the same name. Maladnyak members believed in their talent and exceptional mission of the creators of this new proletarian literature.

The republican project On the Waves of Time throughout Life (2019–2023) was started on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Maladnyak Literary Association. The initiators of its realization were the National Library of Belarus, the State Museum of the History of the Belarusian Literature, the Belarusian State Archive-Museum of Literature and Art, and The Publishing House Zvyazda (Star) (Maladosts magazine).

It is on pages No. 6 of 1925 one can read the program text Maladnyak (Instead of Declaration) by the writers of the first professional community.
