    7. Another great publication is Parallel Ink. It's an online magazine publishing poetry, narratives, and essays by students ages 12-18 around the world. It's a nice opportunity to get feedback, see your work in digital print, and even get artwork or a translation to go with your writing if its featured in the issue!
