The Teenager Magazine News



My article, "My Wild And Wonderful Life", is out in stores now in India. It is on page 8 in The Teenager's June 2008 issue.

I'm really pleased with myself on this one, cause my article even made the front page (in the left top corner). So yes, I feel like my articles are getting noticed for its' excellence (dare I say?).

A shout-out to the Indians: let me know what you think, will ya? Thanks.

REst assured Vicki,
You are causing ripples at least at some level. And it is good that u write on issues youngsters hardly reflect on - environment, wildlife etc.

This is Santosh from India. I read your article that appeared in the magazine, 'The Teenager'. It was very inspiring from the beginning to the end and that you are still a teen makes me feel proud of you. My congrats to your uncle who is a lover of lions. Continue to write not only on wildlife but about life in Africa too.
Would love to know more about the poor tribal Africans and their way of life.

Thanks for your article,

Santosh

Hi Michelle! You know, I once sent Insight an article about 2 years ago; they rejected it. I felt pretty bad. But you're right, I should consider sending some of my stuff to Insight...thanks for the thought! And the encouragement! Will look into it.

Great! I hope to hear from you soon. You know, you're not a real writer until you've received a rejection notice. Every heard that before?

Michelle,

Yep, I know that there will be rejections as well as acceptions. I've been rejected a few times by magazines (4 times), and accepted 16 times. So the odds is not much. The thing is just, when I sent my articles to Insights, they didn't give me their reasons for rejecting it. So I couldn't build on it and learn from it. I had no idea what was wrong with my articles, so I couldn't correct it or rewrite it, and send it again...but I will try again.
