Disposable Arts This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.
I've always been told that I will never get a job as a high school art teacher. I've been told that nobody will want to hire me because art is “not an important subject” and “doesn't benefit anything.” Hearing this almost crushed my... (more »)

a peek in my mind
By , tustin, MI
No one ever realizes that you are never truly alone until you're in a crowd, especially if all the people in that crowd can't stand your guts. Now this isn't the first time I felt like this and I'm sure it won't be the last... (more »)

Elevators
