NTX Giving Day is TOMORROW!! Today we are excited to highlight a nonprofit that is new to #NTXGivingDay. Please give a warm welcome to #TeenWritersProject!

Teen Writers Project is committed to making writing accessible, engaging and fun for teens, especially those in vulnerable populations. #TeenWritersProject exists to nurture a passion for writing and teach teens that no matter who you are or where you come from, you can write. #TeenWritersProject serves a culturally and educationally diverse community of teens:
-80% teens of color/BIPOC
-85% high need
-75% immigrant or first generation
-45% LGBTQ+

Through #TeenWritersProject’s workshops and projects, teens are encouraged to share their unique stories and thoughts, with emphasis on how authorship improves their social-emotional learning and academic development.

For their first NTX Giving Day, #TeenWritersProject this organization has big goals to help meet their important needs.

“If we raise enough funding, we’ll be able to expand our programs and reach even more teens. Right now, we need funding for notebooks, workshops, training, mentors, residencies, retreats, and to print our Lit Zine and journals digitally and to publish,” said delmetria millener, founding director and editor-in-chief.

“#TeenWritersProject is a space that develops and grows young writers to help them translate their thoughts and experiences into art. More financial support will allow us to reach a broader audience, increase distribution of our lit journal, and expand into areas like shelters that house homeless teens," said Shankrelyn C. Walker, board member and treasurer.

We sincerely wish #TeenWritersProject luck with their first-ever NTX Giving Day!

For our feature on Dallas nonprofit Teen Writers Project, it seemed fitting that we hear directly from one of the teen writers involved!

Kendall begins this story, and delmetria (lowercase intended), her mentor, and Founding Director of #TeenWritersProject follows with her own perspective on helping teens find their voice, find their platform, and find their purpose.

So happy to find this community! I am searching for an online writing program that is inclusive and fun. We tried Time4Writing, but were not impressed. Any ideas?
Hello Teen Journalists! My name is Amy Stevens and I am the Editor-In-Chief of a teen magazine based out of Dallas, Texas called Texas Teen Models Official Magazine. You can check us out here: www.texasteenmodelsofficial.com
Our magazine is accepting writing submissions for 2021. We publish a 100+ page magazine monthly. Our focus is encouraging individuality and social responsibility in teens and each of our monthly issues features a message meant to inspire teens. Please take a look at our monthly messages and focuses for 2021, listed below. If you are passionate about journalism and would like to submit an article for publication in one of our monthly issues, you can email me at [email protected]. Please specify the month you are interested in submitting for. Articles must be at least 200 words to be considered. We publish 4 articles monthly and are just opening our submissions platform, so now is a great time to submit your work!! We accept submissions from teens ag 13 to 19.

January: “Be U”
The main goal of our organization is to educate teens that individuality is important! Learning to love ourselves for who we are is a big accomplishment and the earlier we can do that, the more successful we will be in life. We also believe that caring about and serving the world around us is the first step towards self acceptance. Humans need to help each other in order to help themselves.

February: “ Never Stop Dreaming”
February is Black History Month and we put a premium on equality. Our platform encourages love and acceptance for every human being regardless of ANYTHING. Our focus for this month will be encouraging teens to dream big; don’t let anything or anyone hold you back. And remember, every failure is a lesson. If you are not willing to fail, you are not ready to succeed.

March: “Learning to Live, Laugh, and Love In the New Normal”
The Covid-19 pandemic 1 year anniversary is in March, 2021. We thought it would be interesting to take a look at how our lives have changed. Learning to celebrate the positives in situations that seem overly negative is a life lesson. We would like to explore how our teens have positively transitioned in a world full of masks, social distancing, remote learning and fear.

April: “Green is the New Black”
If you still aren’t sure how important it is to make environmentally friendly choices in your daily life, let us remind you!!! The future MUST be greener on so many levels, one of those being fashion. This issue will be a reminder of several environmental issues that are killing our planet and the changes we need to make so that future generations can live here, too.

May: “The Fluctuations In Our Minds”
May is “Mental Health Awareness” month and we want to shout awareness from the rooftops!! Removing the stigma from individuals with mental health issues in an uphill battle: just because you suffer from a mental illness or impairment does not make you less valuable. We will explore the mental health issues that most affect today’s teens and why many of these are increasing.

June: “Pride In Everyone”
Individual identity and sexual preferences are nobody else’s business. At TTMO, we believe that who you are is AMAZING and that no matter how you identify, you should be PROUD. Gender “norms” should not be dictated by society. Individuals should feel comfortable and proud regarding any decisions they make for themselves without having to worry about what others think or how they will be judged.

July: “Your Perfect Shape Is Your Healthiest Shape”
Body image is a constant struggle for young men and women. We want teens everywhere to know that everyone has a different “perfect” shape. Changing the way society views beauty is a struggle we won’t give up on. In this issue, we will explore how healthy habits lead to happiness and positive body vibes.

August: “Selflessness”
At the heart of TTMO’s mission is selflessness. Learning to care more about helping others is crucial to a society that thrives. When we learn that helping others not only builds up our communities, but also allows us to feel truly happy, we succeed. Teens who learn this lesson early will conquer one of life’s most important lessons.

September: “What Moves You?”
Another crucial part of understanding who we are as individuals comes from exploring our own hobbies and talents. We all find enjoyment from different activities. Developing talents and taking time to enjoy hobbies helps us grow as individuals. Our focus shouldn’t be overly competitive when it comes to our talents and hobbies, but being a little better every day at what we enjoy.

October: “Character Is Everything”
What characteristics do you admire in others? Kindness, Loyalty, Hard Work, Determination, Focus, Selflessness? Not what we look like, not what we wear, not how good we are at a sport or activity, but the way we treat others will always define us. Understanding that our character is one of our greatest assets in life is very important.

November: “The Importance of Family and Friends”
Your culture and heritage help shape you. The people you interact with most have the power to influence you for better or for worse. In this issue, we pay homage to our heroes and mentors and to those who make a positive difference in our lives, and the lives of others.

December: “Like A Boss”
Own. It. Be confident in yourself. You are POWERFUL! You are a FORCE! You have got this. We want teens to know that they are capable of greatness. Find a purpose and go to work. Don’t let setbacks or failure steer you off course. Pick yourself up, refocus, and don’t look back.
