We here at Teens Now Talk magazine are so excited to welcome you to the new and improved TNT WEBSITE! Over the past ten years, TNT has been proud to connect youth with their peers and communities; encourage youth to love themselves and embrace who they are, and give youth a platform to explore their creative capabilities. Our new site will expand that platform by inspiring youth to connect with each other on a deeper, more interconnected level, and allow for their thoughts, questions, and voices to continue to be HEARD.

Teens Now Talk magazine would not be what it is today without the support and engagement of our diverse communities’ youth. We would like to take this time to applaud our incredibly talented contributors for their support over the last ten years! We hope that this site serves as a platform to better connect, engage, inspire, and encourage our youth to succeed, and tap into the creative talents we know they have!

We could not have created this site without your help, so thank YOU. Keep sending us your stories, poems, thoughts, questions, and illustrations. Not only do these contributions empower those who create, but they inspire, and empower OTHERS to create too! It is amazing the lives you can touch by sharing your experiences with others. Your voice is important, and it is our mission to make sure that all voices are valued, respected, and above all, heard.

As you get to know our new site, we hope you love seeing all of your old favourites, like TNT’s empowering Writing Corner; TNT’s expert advice columnist, Dear Diva; and of course, the super funny (and relatable!) Embarrassing Moments! Keep your eyes peeled for your own work and the new additions that will be coming weekly to the site. Don’t forget to submit your own work! We LOVE hearing from you.

We look forward to experiencing this exciting step forward with you all! Keep on keeping on, and most importantly, keep being YOU!

Have a safe, fun and SPOOKY Halloween. P.S. Don’t forget to check out our 2017 HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST! Entries have a chance to win a $50 gift card!! BEST COSTUME WINS!
