What is it like to be a young person living in 21st century Britain?
The MeeTwo magazine is your chance to tell it like it is and write about how it feels to deal with issues such as exam stress, selfie culture, family breakdown, cultural conflict, toxic friendships and sex and relationships. We want the MeeTwo magazine to offer genuine insights into the highs and lows of being a teenager at a time when the opportunities of technical innovation are limited by the uncertainties of economic and political instability.
The MeeTwo magazine will be edited and put together by professionals to ensure that it is a high quality production. Journalists will work with contributors to help ensure that your stories achieve real depth and resonance. The magazine will be put together by an award winning graphic designer and will be printed in full colour on high quality paper. The magazine will be funded through Kickstarter and distributed free to UK schools in March 2018.
Submit your artwork
We are keen to show teenagers that you don't need to be able to draw to be good at art, so you are encouraged to make/find/adapt images or photographs to accompany your work.
You can also use free picture libraries to illustrate your text. You need to ensure that the images are FREE to use without cost, or copyright, and you need to credit the photographer or the illustrator who created the image.

Submit your articles
We are producing this magazine to encourage young people to talk about issues that are meaningful to them and to express those feelings creatively. It’s an open brief. You can write about anything that affects you and your life, but you will need to be able to write about one A4 page of text. Only the best articles will make it into the magazine.
