More than Words: Thoughts on The Best Teen Writing of 2012
 
"Writing is more than words. It’s not words themselves but their power that relates the human condition to a universe of ideas. Words can do so by submerging a reader in an experience or provoking an audience to question assumptions and consider new perspectives. Writing is about ideas as much as language; literature makes us think. The works in The Best Teen Writing of 2012 exemplify these tenets and surpass them. Strong and audacious, these writers have something to say."- Haris Durrani, 2011 Portfolio Gold Medalist and student editor of The Best Teen Writing of 2012
