A Writing Career Born of Teen Ink MAG

By Jessica B., Tallahasee, FL

     Before I turn 20 and am too old to be published in Teen Ink, I wanted to send my thanks to you for being the launching pad for my budding writing career. You were the first magazine to publish my work and that acknowledgement gave me the push to submit my writing to other publications. Since then, I have had over 40 pieces published.

My publication in Teen Ink inspired me to pursue writing as a career and this spring I will graduate from Florida State University with a B. A. in Literature. Thank you for your devotion to teens across the world. If not for Teen Ink, many teens would be without a voice. Best wishes for many more years of success!
