New Formatting for Poetry This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Dear Teen Ink,

I am a fan of the new layout used for the poetry section in the summer issue. Instead of having all of the poetry clumped at the end like it normally is, in this last issue, it is spaced throughout 20 pages near the end of the magazine. It falls in little chunks of a page, two, or three, between pages of art and fiction.

I think like this is a better, more effective way to space the poetry in Teen Ink because it feels a bit daunting to see ten or so pages of poetry to read all at once. Having a page here and a couple pages there is less overwhelming to the reader, and I think more of the poetry will be read when it is formatted in this way. I hope to see this new formatting again in Teen Ink magazine in the future.
