One Teen Story: A New Magazine Out of Park Slope Needs Your Support
One Story, the acclaimed pocket-sized literary magazine featuring one story per issue and mailed out 18 times a year, is published in the Park Slope/Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn by publisher Maribeth Batcha and editor Hannah Tinti.
Batcha is set to launch One Teen Story, a great idea if I ever heard one. One Teen Story, as described by the publisher, will be for young adult readers of every age. Each issue will feature one amazing short story about the teen experience.
The first story to be published in the upcoming first issue of One Teen Story is Gayle Forman’s “The Deadline.”
Today they are launching a Kickstarter campaign to cover the costs of printing One Teen Story. Indeed, they are committed to making One Teen Story a print magazine. That said, print bills are high and really difficult for a startup to cover.
They’re calling out to YA readers everywhere to make a tax-deductible donation at Kickstarter. They’ve got great rewards for donations as low as $10!
