Juvenilia is a term applied to literary, musical or artistic works produced by an author during his or her youth.

The term was first recorded in 1622 in George Wither's poetry collection Ivvenilia. Later, other notable poets, such as John Dryden and Alfred Lord Tennyson came to use the term for collections of their early poetry. Jane Austen's earlier literary works are also known by the name of Juvenilia.
