Have you ever wanted to write a book? Now’s your chance!

Young Authors is a program that is held each year for young writers. It is sponsored by the Illinois Language and Literacy Council. The program is designed for exceptional writing by students. Young Authors provides a platform for children and teens who enjoy writing stories. They also have the chance to meet authors and learn how they create their content and write their stories. They also learn about who they are and how they work. Mrs. Caveny said, “It is a group that gets together weekly to read and create a book.”

They also learn about who they are and how they work.”

Students compete in a competition to find the best story. Most young writers do not have the opportunity to have their writing shared, so this is an excellent opportunity for students to share their work.

Considering that a majority of young people do not read books or write stories this program is inspiring for young writers. Mrs. Caveny also said, “It helps to expand the ‘flavors’ of reading and writing.” This program can help to keep writers and readers interested in the hobby. Young Authors can also be a form of self expression depending on how and what you write about. It helps others with what they are going through or just to get their mind off of things. Reading is an amazing way to put your mind on something else and focus on the world of reading and writing. There are so many positive things that can come out of reading and writing – so take a break, relax and let your mind run free.
