Until Next Week
Custom User Avatar
     Thunder boomed overhead as I sprinted from my beat-up car to the dull, gray building several hundred meters in front of me. Cold spikes of water assaulted my back, seeping through my thin summer shirt, chilling me to the bone. I yanked... (more »)

First Steps Again

Laura thrashed and tossed sheets off of her bed as she awoke form the terrible dream. She stopped after a few moments of tossing and turning, but not before she ruined most of her bed press.  Moist sweat patted her brow and slivered down... (more »)

Hello! My name is Anna Bellding and I am a tightrope walker. I’ve always loved the feeling of being off the ground almost like I was walking on air or flying. I am 24 and I’ve been doing this since I was 7, I’ve been doing it... (more »)

A Portrait of the Pitcher as a Young Man This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.
Custom User Avatar
Grass and red pasty gunk that somehow passes for regulation “dirt.” Diesel and garbage. A feast for the senses. Who decided to put a field here in the armpit of New York City? A chain-link backstop, torn and rusty, an accident and a tetanus... (more »)

Whimper Bang This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
Wisps of smoke curled on themselves to form overdrawn punctuation over people’s heads. Catey frowned at Julia and said, “Put that out. You know I hate the smell of cigarettes.” Julia used her free hand to flick her brown hair out of her... (more »)

Perfect This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
The eyeliner makes the dark circles less pronounced. The lip gloss hides the trembling. The ponytail conceals missing patches of hair. The Abercrombie sweater covers bruises. I might look at bit thinner, but everyone will ask about my new diet. My... (more »)

Wasted Away This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
She’s never been this cold before. Not the type of cold that aches in your feet and causes convulsions in your jaw; the type of cold that jams up your mind, like a song set on repeat with no power or volume dial to make it stop. Really cold.... (more »)
