Happy 2018!! Welcome to our newest theme!

This month we are looking at being In Love, thanks to your responses on our little pop-up survey! Thank you for taking those few minutes to share your ideas with us and keep that feedback coming! The first story drops this Wednesday, but if you just can't wait that long, here are a few articles we've published earlier on the subject.

We will be getting into the nitty-gritty of all the good stuff: heartache, passion and being true to yourself in the often frustrating world of dating. Stay tuned! We publish a story every Saturday and Wednesday.

If you have any TCK stories which meet our guidelines, please send them my way at editor@tcktown.com, or feel free to post them on our Community Facebook Group. Our February edition is "Self Worth" and we are still accepting submissions!

I'd like to say a BIG thank you to Ashleigh Leyshon, Lilith Palmer and Lucy O'Connor for editing this edition with me.

Love you long time!

Welcome to our newest theme!

This month we are looking at Resilience: our ability to "bounce" back in the most constructive way possible. To be quick, adaptive and clever so we can move on to better things.
