Welcome to Teenage Writers!

This is a place where young writers (aged 13-19) can get get feedback on their work, participate in contests and other activities, and improve their writing. Here, we don't believe in 'talent' or 'have-it-or-not ability.' Our goal is to provide support, exposure, and advice to all aspiring writers. Even the writers start somewhere, no matter if you're not so great now because keep at it and one day you will be!

What's Going On:

:bulletred: Our Twisted Valentines Contest is over! Round of applause for the winners.

:bulletblue: A literature/art collaboration project is currently running with partner group The-Youngest-Artists! Assignments are finalised and everyone is currently working hard towards our November deadline.

Featured Members

Congratulations to dagoth-jeff, Jellyfish6, Tureis and dreamsarefairytales for winning our Twisted Valentines Contest with these amazing entries!

Joining and Submission Rules

We accept any authors who wish to join into our group and writing of all types into our gallery. However, there are certain rules that must be followed, as listed below.

We encourage active participation in this group, not just acting as another gallery to submit your deviations. Members are strongly encouraged to regularly take part in group activity. It's not a worry if you really have not the time, but nonetheless it is generally considered an important part of being a member.

If you reach your 20th birthday, you don't have to leave the group. You can still submit, too, but only if it is young-adult in genre and submitted into the young adult folder. Because, unfortunately, we all get older, but it doesn't mean we have to grow up!


To Join--Must Read

Our join rules are spaced out through our submission rules, to make sure you've read them before joining. Any join requests that do not meet the rules will be declined.


To Submit--Must Read

:bulletyellow: It must be literature, but preview images and visual literature are allowed. Submission limit is 3 deviations per day, except for the critiqueable folder (see below). When joining please tell us your age.

:bulletblack: Mature content is allowed but not 18+ as that is unreadable for the majority of our members (this also means that we do not accept erotica).

:bulletpink: All stand-alone writing must be submitted to appropriate genre folders such as Romance, General, etc. The Young Adult folder, while created mainly for members who have now out-grown their teenage years, accepts all writing of the young adult genre regardless of the age of the author. Submission into the featured folder is not allowed, that folder is reserved for contest winners and other special features. Give a short description of yourself.

:bulletpurple: All chapters of multichapter stories are to be submitted into the Novels folder unless it is fanfiction (then it goes in the Fanfiction folder), it is young adult (then it goes in the Young Adult folder), or you would like it critiqued (then it goes in the Critiqueable folder).

:bulletgreen: Only submit up to two chapters (or two chapters and a prologue, a prologue isn't counted as a chapter) of a novel then have a link to the rest. All additional chapters will be declined. Tell us why want to join.

:bulletblue: Submit into the correct folders, and do not submit the same deviation twice. Any deviations that are submitted a second time, are submitted into incorrect folders, or are third or more chapters will be declined.

One very important thing: when submitting a piece into the Critiqueable folder, you must first critique someone else's deviation in that folder. Click "Submit Art" and submit your piece, then go to your inbox and find that correspondence message. Click on "No Comments," then add a comment including the link to your critique. Submissions are unlimited as long as each one is partnered with your own critique. Any submissions without a prior critique will be declined (and a "critique" doesn't have to be an actual deviant feature critique, for those without premium membership a critique in the form of a thorough comment will be perfectly fine). And finally, put in your join request our special 'Prove I Made It To the End' word: "ECHIDNA" (don't know what that is? you've just learned a new word).

We'd love to have you!

Hi everyone!

I usually try to be a present admin, I'm sorry I've disappeared the past few months. I'm leaving for a few weeks to spend 10 months in France, and everything's a bit insane with preparation. Hopefully when I arrive and get things settled I can be on a bit more. I'm planning another round of Two Thousand Words too for those interested in that :-)

Anyway, so, this is just a little update telling you guys that I am still alive. I do hope to run something else soon, so I'm wondering. Would you guys like another contest, maybe? Or how about another secret santa type exchange (not over Christmas, though)?

Activity has been dropping on this group recently. *sigh* I remember 4 years ago when I first inherited it... Ah well. I guess it's the life cycle of all groups. Still, if there are active members still, let me know if anyone's interested in anything!

Hi guys!

Remember that whole art/lit collaboration thing? Well, we're done!

Come and see a whole lot of really awesome projects over at TwoThousandWords. Most of them are up already, though there's still a few coming so add us to your devwatch to follow :-) A list of all projects with links and summaries is here:

We're had a lot of great work, so pop along to check out your fellow writers as well as some really awesome art!

Sorry for the stupid question but how do you submit writing to a group?
Most groups (like this one) only accept submissions from members. So on the front page of a group that you're a member of, you should see a blue banner that says "Welcome Home". To the right, on the banner, will be several buttons. One of them is an icon of a painting called "Submit Art" click it and select the deviations you want to submit :-)

Hope this helps.

Thanks that helped, I think the layout is different on a iPad though.:-)
Oh yeah, maybe... Did you still manage to submit?

Hi! I own a creative writing blog-writtenforreconciliation.blogs… and so would like to get a global eye view on conflict and conflict resolution. Hence I would like to use some little stories about said theme.

Thank you!

i just realized that we dont have a Fixed-Form folder for this group... just wondered if there was any reason.. it sort of feels lame when you've put so much work into a legitimate poem and then have to toss it into the general folder...
The folders are split by genre, not by type. Poetry can go into any folder, depending on subject matter, not style.
