Words from a member

You and the entire membership of Netwest have been an inspiration to me in my writing life. The group is a welcoming & encouraging gathering of like-people. Thank you for all you've done for others. It does not go unnoticed.

Welcome to young writers who follow and use this site.

Often our members fail to subscribe to or  read our blog page. Keeping this site relevant takes much of my time and that of others. I know when you don't read or subscribe because you ask me questions that are easily found on this page. As a serious writer, it would benefit you to subscribe and keep abreast of what is offered here.

I am sharing an email I received this week, and I hope those of you who don't support your own website and blog will realize why we continue to take time and energy to write here, many times at the expense of our own work.

Good Afternoon Ms. Beall,

I volunteer with a creative writing club for children and we wanted to let you know how helpful the NCWN West "writing resources" page, https://netwestwriters.blogspot.com/p/writing-resources.html , has been for us!

We meet on Wednesdays & work on writing prompts, and the kids bring in poems or short stories that we all go over... It's a lot of fun! Lately we have been working on longer narratives, and we've been getting a ton of use out of resources we found on your page.. especially the Writers Digest site.

I have a girl in the group (Carley, one of the youngest we have, actually) who suggested we say thank you! She's already quite a talented writer, and she wanted me to share a resource that she found about becoming an author. She brought it to our meeting for everyone to check out, and she thought you'd be interested in it too... https://www.zenbusiness.com/info/writing-careers/

I was wondering if you might be able to add it to your resources? Carley was really excited to see what you thought so I'm guessing she'll be thrilled to see her suggestion up on your page. Hopefully it helps other aspiring writers who are using your page, like us!

Thank you again, Glenda and if you decide to add Carley's link I can show her at the next meeting :-) Have a good day and enjoy the rest of your week .

Happy Writing,
~Michele Wilson (and the BPL Young Writers Club)

We have listed Carley's link in our Resources for Writers list. Thank you so much, Carley, for sending this link and for using our blog and website to help you become an even better writer. 
Congratulations to Michele Wilson and the BPL Young Writers Club, and we would like to invite you to send us some of your writing to post on this page. We need young people who like to write and who will become the thinking and inspiring writers of tomorrow.

  1. As a former teacher, I wonder why public schools no longer teach more sociological topics. Could it be the fervent avoidance of religion and politics? I remember when I was in school, we had an elective course in civics. I'm curious as to whether that is still offered.
