So I've had four pieces rejected from TeenInk?

I'm just sort of wondering why. They involved light alcohol/drugs and suicide, but I mean if there's a whole opinion section for that sort of thing, is it so wrong that I should have a poem about it? Has anyone else had this issue with things being rejected that you didn't feel should have been? I suppose I'm just a bit irked at the moment :/

Aw, I am sorry. If they ever DO get published, let me know and I'll read them :) But yeah, it is taking awhile to get mine published... I mean they weren't "rejected" but it IS taking awhile...

If they do get published, I will definitely let you know :) It's one of my photos and it's titled "fall from grace". It was at the top of the poetry section instead of on the regular arts and photos page last year.

They'll probably get posted eventually. I had that problem a coulple of months ago, and it took FOREVER, but they finally got put up.

Not to be a downer, but they might not gt published. My four that got rejected took literal months as "pending approval", and then just one day they disappeared off my list. But I hope they do get approved!

You know if it's rejected because it just disappears from your list of work that's pending approval. i really wish they'd give a reason though :P That's what I'm doing right now, I resubmitted them and maybe they'll get through this time...

I wrote a rough draft of a memoir (my first memoir ever, actually) on when someone I knew committed su.icide and how that affected me even though I wasn't one of her friends and I was trying to write it to say that it hurts more people than you realize if you do k.ill yourself, and I'm wondering if it would be accepted here.... what do you think?

It's possible that it would get through, and pretty likely I'd say. Especially if you're advocating against suicide. It's atleast worth submitting, of course.

I hope so... I'm waiting until I feel like working on it again and I want to make it really good now that I know you can't edit/delete anything on teenink.

This happened to me too. I wrote about a little girl who walked into her mom's room to find her dead. and i tried to slyly say that the dad had beaten her. apparently you cant put that in a poem because it got taken of my list. But My friend wrote a story about a dad who beat his two kids and ate the son, and then sent the girl to the mom in a box. how is my story more vulgar than that?

I'm sure your pieces were fantastic.. But see, I read in a Writer's Magazine, that sometimes articles are rejected because there are already similar works out there. Or, maybe your work did not meet the requirements. Sometimes, people don't grade by quality. It's a little unfair, but don't get upset :D That should just encourage you to write more!

Well I also write mostly about depressing and suicidal things. Alot about cutting and stuff like that and poems have disappeared off my list too. I don't really get why they reject them because I honestly don't think that they're that bad or harmful in any way. But I am going to resubmit and see ifthey accept them this time. I'm also going to take a look at your work. Bye :)

I had a story about a vampire and etc. and I got an e-mail saying it was rejected because it didn't meet their standards or that it had some inappropriate material.... but it didnt have any... idk sometimes.
