It took me a while to find Teen Ink – I was looking to publish written work in an online space that was fun, public, safe, appropriate, and a good environment for teens, and I found it. Now I visit TeenInk.com almost every day to comment,... (more »)
A Tribute to Teachers This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

My very first Teen Ink was handed to me by my seventh-grade English teacher. It was something to read after we’d finished our sentence structure test, and so we passed the time by diving into the magazine’s autobiographies,... (more »)

“Just Like You” by Ren H. struck a chord in me. I used to think that there was no problem with people accepting those with autism. I have multiple autistic friends and a brother with Asperger’s syndrome. This article opened my... (more »)

I strongly believe in the compelling ideas expressed by Julia O. in her article “Changing School Start Times.” It is true that teenagers tend to stay up late, as I myself have done; however, it’s great to know that my excuse... (more »)

Although I've said this several times: Even if I have many mixed opinions about this website, I still appreciate the time you take to hand pick work for an Editor's Choice Award, and that is truly splendid work all its own. Please don't take too... (more »)

Where should I start reading? Ultimately, that depends. Check out the pieces with an “editor’s choice award” for best quality. Look for other well-rated pieces on the homepage of each section, and search on the main screen when you first... (more »)

TeenInk-- Without you, I don't know what I'd do. Sitting all day Wasting my time away Waiting for someone To make my day But that's you And everyday you make me hope That someday I'll get a note That says, kindly "You're welcome."... (more »)

Why You Should Give This Piece an Editor's... This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Most of the time, viewers only “view” your work if, a) you shared the link or b) it’s featured on the main page or elsewhere. These usually have a small, red mark with a white check slashing through its center, known by Teen Ink--and its... (more »)

“My Father’s Name is #3022” by Jack S. touched me emotionally. The author really let me into his head, and gave me insight on what it feels like to have to explain that he was conceived through artificial insemination. As what... (more »)

Reading "My Father's Name is #3022" I felt sympathetic. Never before have I heard a true story about a person who falls in this category. Now having read Jack S.'s narrative, I come to realize that artificial insemination can... (more »)

Being published is an honor. But waiting for the magazine is oh, fidgeting.   So, I would like to suggest that once Teen Ink sends the magazine to each of its writer, a notification through an email is also sent. In that case, the writer is... (more »)

Feedback on Good-Bye Forever
Custom User Avatar
"Good-Bye Forever" by Alex Helm is a very meaningful, sentimental piece about letting go of friends. Within a week, the author speaks about saying goodbye to people, and feeling selfish as they are graduating and have no one to speak to next... (more »)
Feedback on "Waterfall"

     The poem “Waterfall” by Brett Comstock caught my attention immediately. It’s a short poem, only three lines, but it created such a strong feeling inside of me. This poem is about a strong waterfall that flows down really quickly... (more »)
Feedback on "Surprise Visit"
Custom User Avatar
      "Surprise Visit" by Marisah Croakman poetically provided a real life metaphor. The poem is about how someone who is trying to help is actually the one who has to take on the pure burden. The author conveys these ideas through many... (more »)
Feedback on "speech"
Custom User Avatar
The poem “speech,” simply put, is about exactly what its title states: a speech. However, the author makes the poem seem as if it is about a very difficult experience, in a very creative way. She compares the topic to something that is very... (more »)
Feedback on "Ashamed To Be Americans?"

      I respect the opinion of the author of this piece, but I disagree. While people often are too quick to hate America, America does have some serious flaws. The claims of America's justice system being racist as you said are not... (more »)
