We recently received an email about Teen Ink celebrating their 20th anniversary. Usually, I just ignore those sort of emails, but I am a big fan of Teen Ink. At my library, we have several copies of various Teen Ink compilations. Back when I was the YA librarian, I would use them on book displays for poetry month or when promoting our writing club. What's neat about Teen Ink is that it is all written by teen writers (hence the name). I am planning on getting the magazines for my Reading classroom because I think my struggling readers might be more interested in reading short stories and poems written by their peers than some of the other materials I use.
As part of their 20th anniversary celebration, Teen Ink is offering a 2-for-1 subscription package to any new library subscribers. If you just want to see what the magazine looks like, you can request a free copy from their website.
