TeenLit.com is a private  not-for-profit web site currently funded and administered  by two secondary teachers in Southeast Michigan.

The sole purpose  of TeenLit.com is to promote Teen Literacy by providing a  forum for teen writers  to publish and discuss their writing,  review and discuss books they read, and to provide a  resource for their teachers.

TeenLit.com is  also a research site for these  teachers to investigate the efficacy of the World Wide  Web in facilitating Teen Literacy in the above-mentioned  ways by examining the interchanges that occur through  this venue.
