During 2014, I profiled several websites for teen writers and journals that publish teen writing. To start off 2015, here are some updates:
Teens Can Write, Too has recently partnered with the teen writing conference, Ch1Con, and they've added several teenage guest writers. More information is available at the TCWT website. Thanks to John Hansen for the update. You can read my original interview with John at Teen Tuesday: Avoid Condescending Advice.
Ann Teplick let me know that Pongo "is in a new stage of growth with many wonderful things happening." You can visit the Pongo website for more information. You can also check my previous post at Teen Tuesday: The Time is Now for Pongo Teen Poetry.
One Teen Story news: Patrick Ryan, Editor-in-Chief says, "Our contest judge this year was Tara Altebrando -- author of The Battle of Darcy Lane and The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life -- and our winner is 16-year-old Lily Dodd, who's written an awesome confessional story called 'Eulogy for Pretzel' (which we'll be publishing in May). We'll also be publishing more teen authors in the near future, so stay tuned!" Patrick provides writing advice at Teen Tuesday: Write Like a Rabbit, Revise Like a Turtle.
YARN (Young Adult Review Network) news: 2015 brings a new Spring edition and their first ever Summer edition. YARN is also celebrating its 5th anniversary this year. To read an interview with Kerri Majors, YARN's Editor, visit Teen Tuesday: Get Published in YARN Literary Journal.
