What is Ten2Teens (T2T) Magazine about?
An online and print magazine with a focus on positive sides of preteens to teens. The overall aim is to promote and share with others and ourselves, a more balanced awareness about our youths dispelling the one-sided negative views that we mostly see in the media.
With a manifesto to “Treat others the way you want to be treated” the need for this platform to help promote, encourage and support this community is now more important than ever. T2T is not here to talk at our youths but to talk with them..
With T2T, our youths not only receive a wealth of useful information, they are encouraged to submit articles, poems, short stories, games/books/ film reviews and artworks making our contents more relatable.
Freelance submissions also in the following areas, Real life stories, school life experiences, family life, Exam preparation, Reviews (books, films, arts and culture), Community/ World events, Travel, Fashion & Beauty and Health, are welcome.
Contributions to Ten2Teens should be submitted by e-mail with your name, headline for your article, a source included with any attached pictures and a brief self-introduction (i.e. tell us at least 4 things about you).
Contents being readable, relevant and relatable are the main goals for T2T. Our youths need to able to see themselves in the pages of this magazine. Writers should avoid technical jargons as much as possible. Submissions should be written in an informal and friendly tone, rather than a formal or scholarly style.
T2T is interested in submissions for features. Features are most issues and events that affect our ten2teens, preferably timed to events currently unfolding in news or first person essays that explore aspects of your emotional struggles, relationships, culture and how you overcame. Articles submitted for this category should be between 300-500 words.
