About Us

Welcome to TeenInk, a national teen magazine, book series, and website devoted entirely to teenage writing, art, photos, and forums. For over 31 years, TeenInk has offered teens the opportunity to publish their creative work and opinions on issues that affect their lives – everything from love and family to school, current events, and self-esteem. Hundreds of thousands of students, aged 13 -19, have submitted their work to us and we have published more than 55,000 teens since 1989.

Distributed through classrooms by English and Art teachers, and available in libraries nationwide, TeenInk magazine offers some of the most thoughtful and creative work generated by teens today. We have no staff writers or artists; we depend completely on submissions from teenagers around the world for our content. TeenInk has the largest distribution of any publication of its kind.

TeenInk 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 TeenInk books are used for educational purposes to further our goals.
