Description

In It For The Long Scrawl was created with the idea that there are smart, well-rounded, intellectual teens roaming the planet. And yeah, they know how to write. We want to break the stereotype that teens can't write and that we are undeveloped human beings. Join us and change the titles on your bookshelves forever!
