Fourth Annual New York Times Summer Reading Contest

We are gearing up for summer reading here (have you registered yet?) and it looks like the New York Times is, too! For the fourth year in a row, they will be holding a writing contest for teens. Ever wanted your work in front of Random House, HuffPo, or NY Times editors? Now is your chance! Teenagers age 13-19 are invited to respond to anything they read in the New York Times and explain why it interested them.

You can find more information about this contest here. And, don't forget, we will be having the first meeting of The Write Stuff on July 24th at 3:30 if you'd like to brush up on your writing skills before putting pen to paper!
