Writing Tips – Teen Authors – And More…

 Once upon a time in a world far away, there lived a blogger. Well . . . three bloggers to be exact. They joined forces and created Teen Writers’ Nook.

Created by teens for teens, Teen Writers’ Nook is a website devoted to encourage young writers to find their voice, with writing advice and positive encouragement. Our focus is to help young authors find their creativity and grow in their writing. Stay tuned for exciting resources all targeted for teens.  So no matter if you’ve written one page, one chapter, or finished a story,  Teen Writers’ Nook is here to help you! 

OUR MISSION:

At Teen Writers’ Nook our goal is to draw together a community of teenage writers and offer encouragement, guidance, and support to them. It’s not an easy task to start a novel (or other written pieces), much less complete one or pursue publication. We believe that all writers desire and need someone to help them along the way, whether that’s through some encouraging messages, beta readers, or writing advice. We believe that the best written works to come are in the hands of our young authors. However, many of them don’t know where to start or dare to believe they could achieve their writerly dreams. Our goal is to challenge young authors to write and become the best author they can be. We stand firm in our belief that teen authors have the ability to be published and strive to make those dreams a reality. Many writers in the TWN community have personally come to us saying they have found a new love for writing or the motivation to complete their next novel. This is what we strive to see happen in the next generation of authors with passion and dedication.

Testimonials:

"TWN is what really inspired me to write and keep writing. I probably wouldn’t be writing today without all of their amazing support and encouragement and I’m so honored that I get to be a part of this great writing community. I owe so much to Issabelle, Katherine, and Alana. They have given me so much help and motivation for so many things."

Meet the founders:

Katherine

I am a Christian writer who writes a variety of things, from poetry and short stories to novels and anything else that ignites my creativity. Writing is my voice and allows me to bring my imagination to life. I love writing about broken characters who find God’s healing. I have the tendency to fangirl over Tangled, 2019 Aladdin, Scooby-Doo, and The Princess Companion by Melanie Cellier. 😃 I am currently reading Prisoner at Heart by Grace A. Johnson.

Alana

I love to write magical fantasy, historical fiction, and poetry putting Christian values in them. I’m an animal lover and enjoy putting them in my stories. I write to bring my stories to life. My favorite books are anything about Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family, plus Narnia and Harry Potter.

Issabelle

I am a homeschooled, ENFP, published author of YA fantasy and a child of God!!!! In my spare time, I enjoy reading, blogging, drawing, and searching for Narnia in wardrobes. I’m a die-hard fan of The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien and The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen and a self-proclaimed exclamation mark enthusiast!!!!!!! I also enjoy cracking ridiculous, random jokes and talking with my TWN fam, ’cause they’re just awesome. I’m a co-founder of Teen Writers’ Nook, which is an online website devoted to motivating and supporting teen authors through the writing process and beyond. My short story, “Fairly Impish”, was featured in Owl Hollow Press’s 2021 Change the World: All-Teen Anthology. What I’m probably doing right now is either fangirling about my favorite books to random people or scanning the pantries for chocolate. (Because that’s just fun.) You can follow me on Goodreads!
