Tween Volunteers Needed at the Public Library
New! Volunteers ages 10-12 who are fluent English speakers are needed for our new Story Buddies program. Story Buddies pairs young children with tween volunteers for creative writing and illustration fun. See gvpl.ca/tweenvolunteers for full details.
For ages 13-18. If your school doesn’t have a slam poetry team, join the library’s team! Past City of Victoria Youth Poet Laureate Morgan Purvis will facilitate weekly workshops and you can participate in the Victoria Voices High School Slam Championships (or cheer on our team from the audience!).
Teen Writing Contest
For Grades 7-12. Enter your original poem, short story, or something else in our “random” category! Create something new or polish up something written for a school assignment.
