It wasn't such a big deal. They just changed two things that I wrote about...a person's name and something where I wrote "Author's Note" which they removed. But it is a bit weird. Has this happened to anyone else?!
Weird! I don't think so, but then again, they probably could've changed a lot of my stuff and I wouldn't notice. Did they give you any notification that they changed it?
They have the right to do so, if you post on this website.
Not at all...which is why it's weird...
I've never had anything edited. But definitely rejected for not being wholesome. 3 times. It sucks.
One of my author's notes was removed once. At first I thought it was a glitch and I have no idea why it was removed.
@McKay...not being "wholesome"? Seriously? What are the rules for that anyway?
not to me ever and i have alot of things up..
I wrote an article about drug withdrawal once, and they edited a lot of it and then tried to print it in the magazine. The whole point of writing that was to show that addicts aren't entirely drug dependent, they're pain dependent because they are so ashamed of themselves and their ways they believe they need to be punished. All they want is to feel better, for at least a small amount of time, and at all costs. Teen Ink edited it and exaggerated everything to be anti drugs. They entirely twisted my words around. It's frustrating.

Well, TeenInk has never changed my words, but they did change the picture that I put with one of my stories. I can't remember what it was before, but it was not an Indian chief.
