Write for The New York Times
The New York Times is holding a contest for student writers. This is your chance to write for the big times! So, if you’ve ever wanted someone other than your teachers to read your writing, now is your chance!
“Between now and Nov. 24, 2015, [The New York Times] invites you to play critic and write an original review…” You can find all of the information here on the Times website. They’ve even posted a link to the judging rubric. I know how much you love rubrics! This is a great opportunity for any of you that are looking for something to beef up those resumés, especially if you’re thinking of studying the Humanities!
Will I help you?
Of course, I will! Will I give you extra credit? If you write a review that I feel you have put a good deal of effort into, of course I will!
What is your first step?
Post your review here in the comments. I know, I know…It’s a competition! Each if you will be writing something so very, very different from your classmates that you can only help each other!
