The teen blog staff is open to anyone ages 12 - 18 (grades 7 - 12) who likes writing. We meet once a month to discuss upcoming articles, update the blog, and hang out with other writers. Our next meeting is November 21st, 4:30 pm. At the meeting, new members can receive a blog account so that those who have access to a computer at home or school can update the blog more often. If enough articles are submitted, the blog will be updated twice a week.
Articles can be about anything of interest to teens. Book reviews, music reviews, and CD reviews are all welcome. So are accounts from school events. For example, a student who attended a basketball game could write a sports article about that, or someone participating in an upcoming play could advertise their performance. Our only restriction is that this blog isn’t a place for mean-spirited remarks, so this is not the place for gossip articles.
The library’s teen blog is just starting out, and since it was created for and by teens, what it becomes is all up to you! If you’re interested, I hope you’ll join us at the next blog meeting.
