Teen Ink Magazine - Sample Issue Offer

I think it's important for teens to be able to express themselves and show their creativity. One way that they can do this, is through writing and art.

Teen Ink is offering a free issue of their print magazine to U.S. residents. Here's some information about Teen Ink (from their website):

..."a national teen magazine, book series, and website devoted entirely to teenage writing and art. Distributed through classrooms by English teachers, Creative Writing teachers, Journalism teachers and art teachers around the country, Teen Ink magazine offers some of the most thoughtful and creative work generated by teens and has the largest distribution of any publication of its kind. We have no staff writers or artists; we depend completely on submissions from teenagers nationwide for our content.

We offer teenagers the opportunity to publish their creative work and opinions on the issues that affect their lives - everything from love and family to teen smoking and community service. Hundreds of thousands of students have submitted their work to us and we have published more than 25,000 teens since 1989.

The Young Authors Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that supports all Teen Ink publications. The foundation is devoted to helping teens share their own voices, while developing reading, writing, creative and critical-thinking skills. All proceeds from the print magazine, website and Teen Ink books are used exclusively for charitable and educational purposes to further our goal."

If you know a teen who may be interested in this publication and website, check out the link above. If you live in the US, you can request a free sample of Teen Ink magazine here.
