Teen SummerZine 2022
August 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Are you ready to take your writing to the next level? Would you like to see your work published alongside award-winning authors? This summer, you’ll get to work with three Pennsylvania authors who will offer creative prompts and a real-time look at their writing process via Zoom. Our self-published SummerZine will include poetry, short stories, and essays by Lancaster County teen participants and our guest authors, and it will be catalogued at all libraries in the county. Each participant will receive a FREE copy of this year’s Teen SummerZine!
Alexandra Villasante has always loved telling stories—though not always with words. She has a BFA in Painting and an MA in Combined Media (that’s art school speak for making work out of anything). Born in New Jersey to immigrant parents, Alex has the privilegio of dreaming in both English and Spanish. When she’s not writing or painting, Alexandra plans conferences and fundraisers for non-profits. She lives with her family in the semi-wilds of Pennsylvania. Her debut Young Adult novel, The Grief Keeper, was an Indies Next, Indies Introduce and Fall 2019 Junior Library Guild Selection. The Grief Keeper is on ALA’s Rainbow Book List 2020 and is the winner of the 2020 Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Children’s Literature/Young Adult Fiction.
