Two new issues of The Tattoo online now

We have published two more issues that are chock full of advice on how to survive high school. In our September 15th issue, you'll find two Justin Skaradosky cartoons making fun of motivational posters, a piece by Wisconsin teen Emily Mongan about Freshman Kill Day, an essay by South Africa's Mariechen Puchert urging teens to make friends to cope with high school, Tennessee teen Sarah Heath's warning not to make your life an after school television special and West Hartford, Connecticut teen Wesley Saxena's sage advice on the bridge into high school. "It Ain't Like In the Movies," warns Mariah Pulver of Arizona.
In our September 22nd issue, you can read about how teens in Kuwait scrape by during the hunger of Ramadan, thanks to Sana Ali's report. Also featured in the issue are New Jersey teen Shekinah-Glory Dhanie-Beepat's take on homeschooling, another Justin Skaradosky cartoon, Katie Grosser's piece from Germany about being the new foreign kid in school, Harsha Mishra's account from India about the horrors of acne, Georgia's Donicea Johnson's advice to freshmen to get involved and Zhu Qin Zhe's personal tale of making a choice in China.
Talk about spanning the globe!
We have dozens of new writers who are dripping with talent so, please, keep an eye on what they do in the weeks and months ahead.

September 22nd issue and September 15th issue.

More back to school advice from The Tattoo

On the heels of last week's all-Olympics special issue, this week we return to tradition to offer a new Insider's Guide to High School installment, the 20th issue we've devoted to back to school advice over the years. We'll likely have another back to school issue next Monday, too.

This week's issue includes useful advice from teens in Italy, South Africa and the United States. It features two new cartoons from the talented Justin Skaradosky as well.

There's also a review of "No Child..." -- a play currently on stage at TheaterWorks in Hartford, Connecticut -- by two veteran writers for Youth Journalism International, Wesley Saxena and Kiernan Majerus-Collins.

We hope you'll enjoy it.
