Teenink is a pretty popular magazine for young writers, as far as I know. My Creative Writing teacher had a poster of it posted in the room. Anyways, there are so many things going on at Teen Ink! Here are a couple of opportunities, though you should really visit their website each month, because they're always updating:

Poetry Contest
Are you inspired by Maya Angelou, e.e. cummings or Dr. Seuss? Do you love writing haiku? Do verses just run through your head? Then Teen Ink's Monthly Poetry Contest is for you!

Contest Prizes
In addition to being published and receiving a copy of the magazine featuring his or her poem (as well as a pen and pad), the monthly winner will have the opportunity to choose from an exciting selection of Teen Ink merchandise.

Contest Guidelines
Teen Ink will only consider original poetry written by teens. Entries of all kinds are accepted - serious, funny, long or short. We like and read it all!

Deadlines
There are no deadlines; entries are accepted throughout the year. Winning poems are published in Teen Ink magazine and online each month.


Nonfiction Contest
Nonfiction Contest
Make us laugh, move us to tears ... write a fabulous, memorable piece and not only will you be published in Teen Ink, you may be one of our two monthly winners for outstanding work that appears in any of the following sections of the magazine: Nonfiction, Focus, College Essays, What Matters and Sports.

Contest Prizes
Nonfiction pieces are published in Teen Ink magazine and contest winners receive a copy of the magazine (as well as a pad and pen) featuring their work. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to choose from an exciting selection of Teen Ink merchandise.
