Friday night is messy like spilling vodka on my new shirt and being too lazy to change it,
it’s the girls in the bathroom with mascara down their cheeks, it’s how their wishing to be anyone else, when the boy they like forgets to show up, when their best friend leaves without them, when they lose their cellphones, when they lose their minds, it’s the broken bottles on the sidewalk, the smell of cigarettes in your hair, the bruised knees and the missed chances and the missed Ubers and the missed phone calls, it’s missing you when I wake up alone, it’s trying to scrub the night from my skin in cold showers with cold beers, it’s the smell of regret, sins, and people loving people more than they are loved back.

Hello writers and artists on Tumblr! My name is Sebastian and I am beginning this new project that has been a long time in the making. I am beginning to curate a literary/art magazine by teenagers, for teenagers. This work will only be by kids 13-18, because I feel like those are the people who have some of the best work to share and they are never given an outlet to share it. That is why I am creating this magazine, because I want more adolescent voices to be heard. If you are interested in submitting writing (essays, poems, short stories, flash fiction, etc.) or visual art (photography, graphic design, drawing, painting, etc.) then feel free to head over to the Submission Guidelines. Thank you so much and have a wonderful day!
and the ocean calls us back so we sink sticky fingers in the surf / let the water wash away our sins / in the morning, reporters flock to the beach & mama asks us about the drowned girl & we smile our innocence.
The Next Post is a free online literary magazine designed by two Tumblr users for Tumblr users. There’s a reason that our tagline is “A literary magazine on Tumblr, for Tumblr, by Tumblr.” It accepts short stories in form of nonfiction, fiction, and fanfiction, as well as accepting submissions of photography and art (including fanart).
