If you love to write and want a chance to share your writing with others, join Teen Writers Group for High School and Middle School students. This group meets monthly during the school year for writing exercises and critique circles, but this summer we're going to do something a little different.
This summer you guys will be "Writing to Win a Chance for Publication". Teen writers will be given the chance to submit up to 1500 words of their work (short story, chapter of a novel, 3-5 poems, essay, speech, etc) and 25 entries will be chosen to appear in a Library Anthology which will be published and made available for check-out in the Library. Winners will receive a free copy.
This will be a real publication and an excellent opportunity to fatten up your writing resume. Specific guidelines on how to enter will be given out on the date of the meeting. Those interested in participating can pick one up during the program, or later, the rules will appear online. The last day to submit will be on July 27th at midnight.
If you have any questions please e-mail Eboni: email@example.com or call 831-646-2094.
**This is a Teen Summer Reading activity. Don't forget that with each activity you attend, your name will be placed in a drawing for a $10 gift card to be given out at the end of the program.**
