Children's LiteratureWriting can be a challenge or an avocation. Sadly, in this modern era many Americans view writing as an onerous task to avoid. Yet for some folks, sitting at a computer or with pen in hand to create a work in print is a life-long dream. In this illustrated title in the "Cocurricular Activities" series, readers are given an overview of some of the clubs that may exist in their high school linked to the art of writing. Subjects such as school newspapers, yearbooks, and journalism clubs are presented in ways that should be of interest to potential participants. Additionally, connections are made between these types of school-based activities and future studies and careers. Like the other titles in this set, this book may well be a valuable reference tool for exploring avenues in which to channel their talents, interests, and time. 2005, Mason Crest Publishers, Ages 14 up.
