Agenda for Friday, March 10, 2015

1. Take attendance

2. Write a story about one of the following prompts:

If you were forced to live the rest of your life in a library, museum, or a zoo, which would you choose and why?

  Once the dust has settled, she walked among the bodies, closing their eyes and remembering them. Write about the events that led to this one. 

She can see the Monsters crawling across the ceiling but no one else can. Describe the monsters. 

There’s someone in my head but it’s not me. Write what kind of things you would  hear. 

My sister said Mommy killed her but Mommy said I don’t have a sister. Who killed the sister? And does she even have a sister?

Everyone was falling asleep. No, It was more than that. They were passing out. What is causing them to pass out? 

> There should be no talking. Remember, you come here to write, not to socialize.

Teen Poetry Contest

Spring is almost here and that means it’s time for Wake County Public Libraries’ Annual Teen Poetry Contest! From now until April 15th teens in grades 6-12 can submit up to three original poems in their grade category (6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th). This we are featuring a special optional category. Teens can submit an additional poem based on our Summer Reading Program theme, “Every Hero Has a Story”. First, second, and third place winners will be chosen in each of these categories. Winners will be featured on the library’s website and honored at an awards reception at Cameron Village Library in May 16th. The winner of our special category will also be featured on our Summer Reading Program website. The Teen Poetry Contest is the perfect way for Wake County teens to celebrate National Poetry Month this April!
