We are young. We are creative. We are free. Teenage Wasteland is a place for teens all over the world to find a home for their creative writing. We welcome all voices and encourage you to speak freely.
As Dorianne Laux said in Issue #2:
Be you, that swirl of dust shaped into your own particular person, with your humor, your wit, your blankets of sorrow and joy, your strangely shaped feet and five-fingered hands, your bonfire nights and garage bands, your rings and tattoos and bugaboos, your attitudes.
Editors: Sarah Miller Freehauf, Sydney Sargis, Ethan Horst
Readers: Sarah Allen & Kacie Hampton
Founding Co-Editors: Nathan Kiphart & Ciara Knisely

Special THANK YOU to the Warsaw Education Foundation for the grant we received to help fund Issue #2 and beyond. Without this grant, we would be paying out of our own measly pockets.
