Attention 7th and 8th graders!
The One Book Two Book children’s literature festival and the Iowa Young Writer’s Project are teaming up to host the Jr. High Writing Jam on Saturday, January 12 from 11:30-1:00 PM at the pedestrian mall location of Capanna Coffee and Gelato. You must be in 7th or 8th grade to participate.
The writing jam itself sounds like lots of fun: free Wedge pizza for registered participants, hanging out with other aspiring writers, and listening to their sweet stories and poems in an open-mic format. Plus, first place winners will be awarded ”two free tickets (for the student and one guest) to the Once Upon a Time dinner on Friday, January 11; be acknowledged at the dinner, the Writing Jam! and throughout the festival weekend; and be interviewed and videotaped (with permission) for our On the Fly author series. The interviews, along with the winning stories, will be posted on the City of Literature website.”
Fame, glory, pizza…what’s not to like? Head over to their website to register and learn more!
