Who decides what gets published?
Our editorial team reviews every submission and picks the best for each section of The Teenager Today‘s print magazine and website.

I sent something in a few months ago, but it hasn’t been published.
Due to the large number of submissions we get each month, we can only publish a few of them. Keep reading The Teenager Today (print and website) to see if your submission has appeared.

How will I know if I get published?
If you are published in The Teenager Today‘s print magazine, you’ll receive an e-mail informing you of the same. You will also receive a print and digital copy of the issue in which your work was published. (In case of Teen Point of View and Funny Bone, you will receive only a digital issue).

Who will see my work if it is published?
The Teenager Today goes out to thousands of teens across the country, and is read by parents and teachers. And, of course, thousands more will be able to view your writing and photography on our website.
