July 3, 2005 -- A new magazine that made its debut earlier this year has released it’s fourth issue, "Bonvoyage." Published by the Éclectron Publishing Group, Young-Expressions Magazine encourages creative self-expression and self-acceptance in tween / teen girls. The full-scale, family oriented, bi-monthly publication entitled is aimed primarily at American and Canadian girls between 10 and 18 years and is available solely on the Internet at no cost to the reader.

“The magazine has allready grown to well over 5000 regular readers.” says Conceptual Editor and Chief Photographer Lukas de Saint-Clair. “Not only are we helping our readers by encouraging them to see the value of themselves, but we are assisting young models to launch their career in a professional, healthy and ethical way.”
Young-Expressions Magazine challenges current popular trends in the media by focusing their creative energy on positive self-image as opposed to embracing popular exploitational trends. "We want our readers to walk away from our magazine feeling good and proud about themselves, not wishing they were someone else." says Saint-Clair. "We want to inspire rather than impress."
Éclectron Publishing Group, an independent electronic publishing company, developed the magazine to fill a void in the Internet. “We noticed that there are actually few places where a tween aged girl can get interesting high-quality information without finding something obscene, inappropriate, or teaser sites designed only to sell you a paper magazine.” says Managing Editor Lisa R. Cooley, “What we offer here is a full-scale, no bones, magazine, equal in content to similar publications found in book stores, but available at no cost to all young people on the Internet. This gives them not only access to a high-quality publication, but also a place to go on the Internet that the average parent would not object to.”
“Young-Expressions Magazine” contains a full assortment of articles in sectional topics such as Health, Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyles and Expressions, a special section dedicated to the expressive Arts. All are wonderfully illustrated by established professional photographers and illustrators and very easy to surf. Additionally, there can be found a great assortment of regulars such as music, film and video game reviews, horoscopes, and advice columns.
The current issue features the photographic work of commercial fashion photographer and visual artist Lukas de Saint-Clair. "Bonvoyage" is a small photoessay about summer travel featured this issue. It is about building experiences over the summer that the young person will dream about all winter long. "Bonvoyage" is a charming visual experience brilliantly created and aimed at the tween girl, but also appeals to people all ages.
Young-Expressions Magazine is an interactive bi-monthly and regularly publishes reader contributions. Readers can simply email their submission to the editors for publication consideration. "We welcome submissions from all our readers" says Managing Editor Lisa R. Cooley.
