    Hi Janyah,

    I think your writing really hits home with a lot of people and every girl can relate in some way, shape, or form. I think society is toxic when it comes to body image, and parents don’t do much to help when they raise their sons either. Great piece!

    Hi Thaarini,

    I thoroughly enjoyed your poem. Based on this poem, it seems like you are an amazing writer. Your use of imagery was fantastic and I could relate to every line you wrote. I also like the ending of your story where you state the word nostalgia as the feeling you were describing, and I too agree that nostalgia is such a warm sounding…[Read more]

    Hi Jasmine,

    I found your poem about your room to be very relatable and enjoyable. I can relate to many versus. For example, I too think of my room as safe place, and I also always like to keep my room clean.

    The window is completely open and the warm summer breeze is blowing around the airy white curtains. Through the chipped white paint that covers the oak framed window I see nothing but green hills and blue skies. A

  • Hi Autumn,

    Hi Jannette,

    Eleanor and Park is one of my favorite books. I found it to be a very sweet quick read. I think the author does a good job developing Eleanor and Park’s relationship without it being forced, rushed or too cheesy. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book!

    I am from lightning bugs in mason jars,

    and wet feet from the dewy night time grass.

    I am from Kool-Aid that stains my tongue blue

    and cartwheels that make my head spin.

    I am from the house with the yellow

    • Dear Alli,
      My name is jose and I was amazed by your poem Were i’m From Because I felt like I was able to connect with what your lines said. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is I am from a little bit of everything and a little bit of everyone. I think that this is beautiful because everything and everyone does make you how you are. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

    • Dear Alli,
      I really liked this poem. I wrote a Where I’m From poem earlier this year and found it difficult to make it flow nicely but also have the kind of emotion I wanted it to. Your poem did an incredible job of that. I really loved the imagery of the bookshelf in the last couple lines. It truly got across this concept of a family rooted in it home and memories that I really enjoyed. Thank you for sharing!


    • Dear Alli,
      I loved reading this poem. I felt like I was able to really visualize all of the things that you described. From the Kool-Aid to the superman ice cream. Those descriptions helped me connect to your poem. My favorite line has to be the last one where you state “I am from a little bit of everything and a little bit of everyone.” I think that line is so true. In every person that you meet they become apart of you and you to them. I think in everything we see we are able to find a little part of ourselves.
