    Love.   I grew up in what I later had labelled for me as "une famille anglaise typique" which constisted of me, my brother and my parents. it was as typically happy as those typical families that can be found in typical children's books and typical children's imaginations. We were that "Close...

    I suppose I must smell a little like The toxic aftertaste Of all my wasted dreams And a little like The strawberry lip gloss I try to hide them in. I suppose I must smell a little like The acid, boiled-out sweat Of all my ballet classes And a little like The satin pink trapp...

    I suspect that this is going to be one of those things that isn't possible but I was wondering whether, at some point, the set up for submitting videos will change to accept non-youtube entries. As a budding dancer, I would love to be able to share footage and get feedback on it like I can wit...

    The April 2014 issue was an event of many firsts: it was my first Teen Ink magazine, my first publication irreversibly on paper, and my first realization of my unextraordinariness. On top of this it was also a chance to wonder at the writing of other teens, especially “I Like/I Hate” by Sami ...

    There are many reasons why I would like to have Michael Gove’s face on a punch bag in my room. The general all-encompassing one is that I feel it may spark a hitherto unsuspected boxing career. In an ideal world, having finessed my talent, I would have a go at the man himself but I fear this might...

    “I like to keep my schoolbooks In color order; Honestly, I’m so OCD!” Honestly? I’d pity you, but I haven’t time. My time is caught On the grated, raw skin On the backs of his hands From the incessant washing, Cleansing, purging, eradicating, As h...

    You said: “I’m sick of poetry. I bet the first poet was pissed But they all just copied him.” I said that Poetry wasn’t like that It was words spilling From an overfilled glass; They staggered and slurred On the page until They seemed to have a meaning. And you said: “Exactly....

    Each morning You add another layer to your mask, Eat another grain of eyebrow, Bruise the fringes of your lids a little darker Are you so afraid of your beauty That it must be swaddled? You singe you scalp, And dye your lips So that colours crumb in the creases. Sometimes I wonder; Do you ...
