About Us

Fresh Ink for Teens (FIT) is a website whose content is written for--and by--Jewish teens from around the world. FIT covers high school, politics, Israel, sports, culture, college preparation, Judaism, family matters and more through original articles and insightful essays. Creative writing and poetry are also welcome.

Originally published as a printed supplement to The New York Jewish Week, Fresh Ink began more than 15 years ago and has won awards from the American Jewish Press Association.

The website is edited by Shira Vickar-Fox (freshinkforteens@jewishweek.org) and hosted by The Jewish Week Media Group, New York, NY.

Fresh Ink for Teens is made possible through the generosity of the Norman E. Alexander Family Foundation fund. Mr. Alexander was a founder of The Jewish Week who had a special interest in educating and inspiring young people.

May his memory be a blessing.
