    Hello Sarcasteens! 

    Sorry for the *ahem* brief intermission in activities in recent months. The thing is, because this site is produced almost exclusively by people in their mid-late teens, exam season can come as a most unwelcome distraction. We also experienced some technical difficulties in that our URL expired and various complications with our host meant that I had to wait a while before we could return to being

    Never to worry though, we’re back for July! This month’s theme is Adventure.

    Due to a general lack of submissions as well as a bit of trouble with our URL (which has now been restored to its former glory), Sarcasteen has experienced a bit of downtime in the last month or two. However, we can’t let this die now, can we? 

    We want you to join our team! In order to be eligible to write for us you must 

    • be between the ages of 12-21 (though we do take feature submissions from older writers)
    • be willing to write for us two or three times a month
    • be willing to work in a team of creative young people from around the world

    That is literally it. You don’t even have to be good at writing, as our editors will fix your grammar and spelling and give great feedback to help you improve your work. We’re not just looking for writers too- we need artists, editors, photographers and social media whizzes to help us run the site. A full list of all our roles can be found here.

    If you’re interested in joining our team give us a quick informal email at

    With the following information 

    • Name
    • Age
    • Country
    • Preferred role
    • Reason you’d like to join the team

    We’ll try and get back to you ASAP. 

    We also take individual submissions if you’d like to write something but don’t want to join the team permanently. Unfortunately, as not even I earn a penny from this site we cannot pay you for your work at this time.

    Hope to hear from you soon,

    Ellen and the Sarcasteam 

    The Order and Chaos of organising a TedX conference //Thoughts

    When I first thought of organizing a TEDx conference, I had an idea of what it was I wanted to do but no notion of what was in store for me.  I applied for a license on behalf of my school sometime over the summer and was surprised to receive an email two weeks later granting me the license. 

    When I initially approached the school’s administrators, they were hesitant and raised many skeptical brows. Beginning to worry that I had undertaken the wrong challenge, I was distracted from my endeavors by my university applications.
