I’m volunteering at this event and another Teenquake event. Can’t wait!!!
Teenquake & Figment.com are honored to
invite you to attend the
Teenquake Writing Awards Ceremony
on Friday, October 14, 8pm
at Z Space, 450 Florida Street, S.F.The evening will be a celebration of teen writing, with superstar authors and an open mic. First, second, and third place winners in each category will be announced live by the judges, and each first place winner will be invited to read their work to the audience.
Please bring your friends and family.
Z Space is a super cool re-purposed industrial space from the late 1920s with a huge auditorium, and we want to fill those seats. And did we mention the event is free? The guest judges—Jandy Nelson, Malinda Lo, Dana Reinhardt, and Charlie Price—will also be on hand to sign books after the event (thanks to Bookshop West Portal). So you can ask them questions about their writing craft. Or just hang out and listen to some fresh teen writing. The open mic sessions will be on a first-come, first-served basis, so we recommend that you get there early to watch Word for Word’s amazing staged reading of Jandy Nelson’s The Sky Is Everywhere at 6:30pm and get your name on the list then!
RSVP on our Facebook page and tell your friends!https://www.facebook.com/
