How I Use It
Whenever I have a budding writer who wants to spread her word wings, I direct her to Teen Ink, where she can find others like her who like to write and share their work with one another.
TeenInk is a wonderful place for budding writers to go to find like minds who also like to write. They can publish their work, get feedback on what they write--in the process learning how to give and take feedback themselves--and in general, accelerate their development as writers by spending time in an online space that also values the written word. They also have a wonderful printed magazine where "best work" gets published.
