Alrighty people, I’ve finally got things up and running.
If you would like to join my young writers club, The Voice of Youth, please say so in the comment section below. I will send you an invitation to become an Author of my new blog, the blog upon which the club will be based. As an Author, you will be able to create your own posts and contribute your own thoughts to the rest of the club. All I need is your “yes” and your username or email, and you’ll be admitted!
To get some people up to speed…
This club is for youths ages 15-22 (exceptions can be made though).
We are all about helping each other become better writers by sharing our work, constructively critiquing others, and discussing diverse writing topics.
For newly published/self published authors, we are all about promoting each other and helping each other get the most attention possible.
Participation requirements: minimal (we are flexible)
Rules of conduct: Be courteous. No bullying, threats, inappropriate comments, images, or publications of any kind. Failure to comply with these guidelines will result in termination of your membership.
With all that out of the way, let’s have fun! 😀 😀 😀
Here’s the mission statement:
The Voice of Youth is a group of writers dedicated to helping each other write stories that promote the True, the Good, and the Beautiful, by providing constructive criticism, honest feedback, and promotional resources, so as to create a vibrant writing community with enough power to move mountains.
If you are on board with all of this, or if you have any questions, please feel free to comment!
So excited to get this started! If you’re interested, don’t be shy!!
Yes, that’s a long title. But I wanted to get your attention.
I am literally thinking up all of this on the fly. But wouldn’t it be great if a Young Writer’s Club was started on WordPress? Does something like this actually exist?
The purpose of the club would be to promote unity, critical thinking, support, and shared love of writing with other young authors.
Age range would be for people between 15 and 22. Exceptions could be made.
This would be more a MOVEMENT, not an official club. I would essentially “run the show”, but I would be equal to every member. If anyone has an idea for how to promote our club, or an idea for a direction we go in, please voice your opinion!
Once again, thinking on the fly…
We could meet once every week? Once every two weeks? Once every month? Preferably on a Saturday or Sunday, when people don’t have classes?
The only thing I am interested in promoting for personal reasons is the following mission statement:
(Insert name of club) is a group of writers dedicated to helping each other write stories that promote the True, the Good, and the Beautiful, by providing constructive criticism, honest feedback, and promotional resources, so as to create a vibrant writing community with enough power to move mountains.
(I’m still working on that last part, but it sounds epic, right?)
Let’s face it. What’s the power of old people? Experience.
What’s the power of young people? Fearlessness. Passion. Lots and lots of passion.
As a movement of young writers, I’d like to see young writers USING their passion. And using it for good. That part about the “true, good, and beautiful” in the mission statement wasn’t something I pulled out of my butt. That phrase is taken from what Ancient Greek philosophers and artists tried to proclaim and portray through their art.
We want to proclaim what is True because nothing is more wonderful to the mind than the Truth.
The Truth will show us, and therefore society, what is Good.
And, once we understand the Good, we can manifest what is Beautiful.
It’s a wonderful philosophy, isn’t it?
What do you think?
If you are within the age range of 15-22 and are interested in joining or have any questions, please comment or email me at:
