I am LIVING for your poem,”Surprise ‘Em”, because it is very uplifting. I like the message that you are conveying. One part of your poem that stands out for me is where you tell the reader to wear what you want, no matter what anyone says or thinks.

I look forward to seeing what you make next because you seem like such an amazing writer.

This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
