Do you have a child who loves to write? Do You homeschool? Do you live in British Columbia? Looking for something different other than just another ‘writing assignment’ in your child’s writing workbook? Why not participate in a Writing Exhibition?
The Victoria Arts Connection is presenting the 2nd Annual Festival of the Book, aka PFB Youth Anthology 2008. This is a unique festival that celebrates diversity in the literary arts. If you have a child who loves to write, why not submit one of their stories to the festival?
Here’s what the PFB Website says about the project:
The Youth Anthology Project brings together two of our vision goals – to support literacy and foster creativity in youth through this publishing project. A call for submissions will go out early in September to all schools in the BC region.
