KidSpirit Launches Winter Issue on Fulfillment by Young Writers and Artists
Each issue of KidSpirit revolves around a Big Question posed by the all-youth Editorial Board. This season, the editors ask, "Can you know you have found fulfillment?"
Other pieces released today include a Canadian teen's examination of how different cultures define success, a Pakistani writer's reflection on life-changing lessons learned from a nonprofit internship, a Chinese-American contributor's article on how his life goals differ from those of his family, a New York editor's story of how fighting for change has brought meaning to his young life, and a review of the documentary Apollo 11. In the Poetry section, a poet pens a tale of determination and endurance, and in the Global Beat, a young man from Paraguay contemplates how his community envisions a meaningful life.
Throughout the season, KidSpirit will continue to publish writing, poetry, artwork, and video by youth on this issue's theme. In Features, one contributor will take a look at barriers to fulfillment, and another will weigh the costs and benefits of competition. Awesome Moments pieces will delve into insights contributors have gleaned from life experiences ranging from ballet to puppy ownership, while the Interfaith Connections department will feature perspectives of teens from different faith traditions. The Helping Hands section will explore the transformative impact of serving others, and in Media, a young author will analyze Tal Ben-Sharar's book The Pursuit of Perfect.
Each issue of KidSpirit features additional wisdom from one adult with expertise in the theme in a column called PerSpectives. This winter, Emily Esfahan Smith, author of the bestselling book The Power of Meaning, will share her insight in this department.
KidSpirit is a unique forum for young people of all backgrounds and traditions to explore life's big questions in an open spirit. For interviews and further information, please contact Justine Woods at the information below.
