Experience is something that comes with time, and even the most talented writers get rejected. While young writers can submit anywhere, there are great publications dedicated to taking submissions from teens. These magazines are starting points for emerging writers, while still upholding a reputation. Publication credits always enhance college applications and future job interviews.
