Write with Jason Reynolds

 

Author Jason Reynolds is the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, and beginning April 14th, he will be hosting a bi-weekly video series called

"Write, Right, Rite."

Click HERE to see all of his videos posted so far...

According to Reynolds, the “Write. Right. Rite.” is all about learning the ritual of “authentic”—not to be confused with “correct” or “exact”—expression. Throughout the series, he will share his passion for storytelling while discussing topics like creativity, connection, and imagination. At the end of each video, Reynolds will share a prompt that encourages young people to work toward a specific idea. The activities are fun-filled and some are more challenging than others, but Reynolds always makes sure to include brainstorming “get-you-going” questions.

So, what do you say? Are you ready to dive into, try on, and work through the newest episode of the “Write. Right. Rite.”?  Check back here for links to the videos!
