First off, It’s cool that you got interested in news Sophomore year because I did as well, but I really only read it for the fake news and searching for half-truths. I still have a fixation on fake news or fabricated stories because of the amount of creativity it takes to make up and write those types of things. This is my senior year and heading…[Read more]
My name is Sadler Smith. The only time I enjoy writing is when I’m writing, and once I get started on a story or essay, it’s very hard for me to stop before it’s done. I have been part of the Rampant Lines
That’s great how you have worked up the ladder in journalism! I also find my self in a manic episode of creativity… starting something and then not being able to stop haha! Except, my passion is painting rather than writing, I find it gives me a good outlet when I am spiraling down the tunnel of existentialism. It sounds like journalism gives you a great sense of purpose and I think you’d be well suited for it in college!

This is a youth-powered publishing platform 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.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
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.
