The Media That Raised Us: Hear from Young Writers and Artists in KidSpirit's Fall Issue
Each issue of KidSpirit revolves around a Big Question posed by the all-youth Editorial Board. This season, the editors ask, "To what extent can the media influence our beliefs and attitudes?" In her response, a young editor looks closely at the pros and cons of digital platforms.
Other pieces released today include an article on equitable representation on screen, a contributor's personal essay exploring how poetry connects her to her homeland, another author's narrative about rediscovering her love for writing, a piece about the transformative effects of founding a student newspaper, and a review of the documentary-
Throughout the season, KidSpirit will continue to publish writing, poetry, artwork, and video by youth on this rich theme. In Features, writers will examine the role of books in our personal development and the impact of "screen time" on the adolescent brain. Awesome Moments pieces will delve into transformative experiences, while the Interfaith Connections department will feature perspectives of teens from different faith traditions. The Helping Hands section will explore the life-changing significance of serving others, and, in Media, young authors will review more books and movies related to the issue's theme.
Each issue of KidSpirit features additional wisdom from one adult with expertise in the theme in a column called PerSpectives. This issue's author will be announced later this season.
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 Rebecca Bowman at the information below.
