FREE is nice. An unexpected FREE thing is nice, too. A yellow ‘big item’ slip in my mailbox meant something. You see the two items that I received in the mailer here. The scholastic Art & Writing Awards Catalog and The Best Teen Writing of 2016. From all over the US. You can find these two gems in the Teen Reads area. Art – or the ‘arty’ pursuits – doesn’t shout at you to read or look at what it offers. Let’s face it, first reactions are pretty subjective. So the two publications won’t grab you like Devil’s Snare as you walk by but I encourage you to read and look at both. Really, really good art and writing from real people (teens). And it’s FREE.
