    We knew we were going to die. It wasn’t in that sense most people have, the way a reasonable person understands that the law of nature dictates that death is inevitable, no matter who you are (it’s natural, they all say-- imagine how horrible it would be if you lived forever-- wouldn’t it be h...

    You pick up a knife, its sharp blade positively gleaming in the sunlight. Gently, you caress it with the dishrag, polishing it to perfection. Amazing, isn’t it, to think that you have a tool of such power in your hand. Amazing, that it’s just a simple kitchen knife, yet capable of so much more. ...

    Mildly alarmed, a middle aged man stepped under an iron arch. This is Peter, a rather affable character. Tentatively, he walked a bit further, out from under the arch, crossing the threshold into the estate. A path, black as pitch, wound its way up stairs, often losing itself then finding itself ag...

    I watch him, in awe, from the corner of the lunch area. He smiles happily over a book, reading carefully, meticulously, mouthing the words, before turning the page-- being careful not to rip it. Sammy, they call out. Sammysammysammy. He looks up, startled. Blue eyes behind thick glasses covere...

    Free Fall by David Wiesner is a spectacular masterpiece of imagination, creativity, and cleverness. It is also, in fact, a book without words, a story entirely conveyed through pictures. Wiesner starts off with a child and holds his audience as the boy travels through a realm of absurd happening...

    I'm a subscriber to both your magazine and e-newsletter. I just read an article in Teen Ink Weekly called “Put It on Paper,” and I loved it; it gave me so many ideas. You see, I keep a journal-diary, but sometimes I have nothing to write in it. Your author's suggestions really inspired me, s...

    I like to hide behind ever mounting piles of paper and ink. I like to hide where I can write and no one can see it's really me. I like to hide behind a philosophical mask where no one would suspect that I was a naive little girl. I like to hide where I can't be found. I likeo...
