First things first: Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with OK TO PRINT somewhere in the letter or nothing gets used.
The rest: We’re doing a letters column for the upcoming Edward Scissorhands miniseries, and we thought it would be a thrill to ask people to submit their best photos of their teen-est selves. Edward is a character I identified with so much, as a sad goth weirdo, but I want you to tell me who got YOU through the angst-ridden, hormone-overload years. What books meant the world to you? What bands changed your life? I want to hear about your passions and fandoms.
Notes: Keep it short, keep it clean, and preference is given to the most INTERESTING pictures. You don’t have to have been goth (although I am a sucker for those photos). I just want to see what you were like at the height of your mid-teens. Diversity is wonderful.
Lastly: If you are younger than that NOW or currently at the height of your adolescence, I still want to hear about the things that make or made you feel better. If you love Burton films, tell me about it. If Kylie Minogue posters cover your walls, tell me why!
Edward Scissorhands comes out late October of this year.
