Video Series That Encourages Young People to Tell Their Own Stories

Recently appointed National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature by the Library of Congress, young adult author Jason Reynolds is bringing his storytelling to students virtually through videos and newsletters as part of his “GRAB THE MIC: Tell Your Story Program.” Reynolds is committed to empowering young writers—particularly writers of color—to tell their own stories, which is part of the goal behind his new video series. Twice a week on the Library of Congress website (and social media), Reynolds is posting videos with writing prompts and creativity-boosting activities. The videos will be up on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. throughout May. Reynolds is calling his video series “Write. Right. Rite.” All together he describes it as an “express-yourself-the-way-you-want-to ritual.” In addition, Reynolds is sending a newsletter for parents and teachers, which the Library describes as a “place where Jason Reynolds can talk directly to you and share his thoughts on relevant topics of the day.”
