Here you will find stories I've come across (or had shared with me) regarding young writers whose literary talents have made headline news in one form or another. If you've heard about any young writers making headlines, please contact me so we can post a link to the story here!
Our first GREAT story is about a young man from Westport, Connecticut, who won the 2011 Connecticut Student Writers Contest! Please meet Grant Sirlin! Congratulations, Grant! Way to go!!
Next up is one of our own authors, Adam Brunetti! Back in April this year (2011), Adam coordinated a night of fun to bring awareness to Asperger's Syndrome and Autism. Unfortunately, this event has already taken place, and had I known about it I most certainly would have made arrangements to be a part of it. On a personal note, over the past few years I've become very close to someone with Asperberger's Syndrome, and I am honored and LUCKY to have him in my life! Adam, thank you for making the time to try to help us all learn a little more about autism and it's many spectrum disorders! My hat is off to you, my friend!
Thank you for your interest in Books By TEEN Authors! Please spread the word to your family and friends and help me make this website what I dream it CAN be... Help me promote the numerous young adult authors out there who need and deserve recognition for their talent and hard work!
