Why the Young Authors Program?

If you're wondering why you should join the Young Authors Program, here are a few good reasons.  If you take Karate lessons, you walk away with a belt.  If you take piano lessons, you learn how to play the piano.  If you take swimming lessons, you learn how to swim.  Well, if you join the YAP, you may get, drum roll please...PUBLISHED!  I realized the word I asked you to unscramble in the last post was publication instead of published.  My apologies for that!
Just think of how great would it be to see your story or poem in a magazine or online?  Even greater than that, what about in a book?  That is my goal for those "serious" young writers!  As "they" say, everyone has a story to tell.  And I don't think there's an age requirement to tell it.  SO, tell your mom or dad you want your voice to be the WORLD!  I have lots of good information for youth writing contests and submissions too!  This week's session is poetry and BOY are we going to have fun with books by Shel Silverstein, Ayana Lowe, and Bob Razcka.  It's going to be a blast!

Until next time, keep reading and writing, writing, writing away!!! And don't forget the YAP motto..."Anything is possible, as long as you believe!"
