An online collection of actual diary entries from teens across the country that is searchable by subject (drugs, friends, school, racism, etc.). The site was inspired by the young author of ZLATA'S DIARY, a book describing life as a teen in a war-zone.
Each issue of this news magazine written and edited by teens covers science, business, entertainment, world events, and much more, all geared towards teens interested in more than the typical prom-diet-fashion advice. Creative teens are invited to submit articles, stories, and poems to the site.
This cyber mag by girls for girls includes sports articles, advice columns, features on topics as diverse as palm reading to high school lockers, creative writing and art by teens, tongue-in-cheek "make-overs," contests, online surveys, free e-mail accounts, the oportunity to create a homepage (also free!), electronic postcards you can send to your friends, book & music reviews, chat rooms & pen pal lists, and much, much more.
If the idea of reading other people's mail turns you on, you'll enjoy this attractive site, created by people who are committed to keeping the art of letter-writing alive. The letters are sorted into three categories: Letters of Reason, Letters of Hope, and Letters of Passion. Readers are encouraged to submit their own letters to the library, though the editors are quite selective in what they will accept.
Angela Martini--aka spacegirl--not only quotes Plato on her website ("The life which is not examined is not worth living"); she examines her own life with style, and invites the reader along for the ride. You can read the online diary she kept during her teenage years, as well view her original illustrations and photography. A fun interactive feature allows you to dress a spacegirl cartoon in a variety of outfits.
An online version of the magazine The 21st Century, featuring writing, art, and photography by teens. You can submit your own poetry to the site or read poetry by other teens. You'll also find book, movie, and music reviews, college info., artwork and photos by teens, interviews, letters to the editor, short stories, essays, and much, much more.
