Want to get published!? The Kansas City Teen Zine is back! We want to publish the most talented teenagers in Kansas City for Unheard Voices #2! We are looking for submission of essays, book/movie reviews, fiction, photography, art, poetry, comics, drawings, short stories, and more to be published. All work MUST be original. All works will be reviewed by other teens in Kansas City for publication.
The Kansas City Public Library joins libraries nationwide in celebrating Teen Tech Week from March 6 – March 12, 2011. The Teen Tech Week theme – Mix and Mash @ Your Library – brings reading together with online and wireless technologies through two tech-driven activities:
Book Blurbs: Teens who text a review of their latest reads will receive a free custom set of earbud headphones and carrying case. All Book Blurbs should use no more than 160 characters and include the title, author, and thumbs up or down verdict—plus whatever else will fit! Book Blurbs should be sent to 816.876.6637. Other submission options include e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. (All participants will receive an electronic receipt that may be redeemed for a free set of custom earbuds at any Library location.)
Video Trailer Workshops: Teens will receive one-on-one guidance on creating their own promotional video trailer for their favorite book (or movie, game, website, or magazine). No materials needed! The Library will provide filming equipment and offer tutorials on how to use free video-editing software. Join us for these awesome Video Trailer Workshops:

Teen Tech Week is a national initiative (coordinated by the Young Adult Library Services Association [YALSA]) aimed at teens, librarians, educators, parents, and other concerned adults that highlights nonprint resources at the library. The 2011 theme — Mix and Mash @ your library — focuses on encouraging teens to use library resources to express their creativity by developing their own unique online content and safely sharing it by using online collaborative tools.
Welcome to Grace, California...Home of the Seven Deadly Sins.
Harper still wants Adam and Kane still wants Beth for some reason.. They each get so desperate that they ask for help from the goddess of Lust herself...Kaia. Kane still wants to try it his way before he goes THAT far. Seniors have SAT's so he enlists the help of the smartest girl he knows...Beth. Soon they’re hanging out for more than just studying. Miranda is still determined to get Kane, even while he's fawning over Beth. But how? She's nothing like his type of bimbo but hey it wouldn't hurt to try to play the part. Would it?
From a person who doesn’t really understand the concept of a “western movie” and has probably seen a total of two westerns in his entire life, who would have guessed that two directors whose talent comes from quirky comedies, can master the art of Cowboys, damsels in distress, and good old fashioned gun fighting?
Welcome to Grace California. Home to the Seven Deadly Sins.
Harper Grace is the local It-Girl in Grace, California. Well That is until Kaia Sellers moves to town from New York City. She's beautiful and wanted, she could easily take Harper's spot as queen of Grace High School. She quickly becomes Haper's enemy and a spot on her most hated list. But numero uno would easily be Beth. Boring, bland Beth.
