Topic: Try writing
For those of you who have a desire to write you have read in the past my comments about ONE TEEN STORY. They are a magazine for teenagers who have a story to tell. If you don't want to spend the money to subscribe ask your library to get the magazine. Read it before you write your own story. If you have a good relationship with your English teacher she/he might help you organize your story. Anyway here is the latest info from the publisher.
One Teen Story just a year old, the monthly magazine of short fiction for young people is getting a new editor-in-chief: Patrick Ryan, 47, was the associate editor of Granta from 2009 to 2013. Designed for readers 14 and up, One Teen Story publishes nine issues a year. Like its parent magazine, it doesn’t carry photographs or advertising. It’s just exactly what it says: one story per issue.
Ryan says young people are “looking for engaging reads about people whom they can identify with. It’s not about having a message or the positive spin. It always starts on a character level, and it has to have an interesting story. If you look at the ‘Twilight’ characters and the ‘Harry Potter’ characters, they feel very contemporary.”
Ryan knows what he’s talking about because he’s written for this market himself. In addition to publishing a collection of short stories for adults, he’s the author of three novels for young adults: “Saints of Augustine,” “In Mike We Trust” and “Gemini Bites.”
