Behind California Sunday’s teen issue, made (mostly) by teenagers

By Jenny Brewer

The latest issue of The California Sunday Magazine set out to focus on teenagers across its remit in California and the American West, and in order to truly embody its subject, worked with largely teenage contributors. From writers to illustrators and photographers, teens were involved in every step of making the magazine. “We’re living in an odd and anxious time here in the US,” says photography director Jacqueline Bates, “so we decided to spend time listening to teenagers to learn more about their lives and what they make of the world around them. In the end, we think it represents a wide variety of teen experiences.”
