The Voice -- FEBRUARY!


 

 The Voice -- February 2018

 




We hope you enjoy Young Writers Project's February issue of The Voice, featuring writing from youths from Hong Kong to Virginia, California to Vermont.

And if you are so moved, send this link -- https://youngwritersproject.org/thevoice -- to friends. Bring them more audience. And tell any young people you know to go to https://youngwritersproject.org to sign up to a civil, creative and fun community of young writers from all over. And, who knows, maybe they'll get published, too.

Thanks to all of you who support our work. And we, in turn, support this site!

Thanks. And Happy New Year!

 

The kbbspin.org family,

Thanks to all of you who gave to YWP during its end-of-year fundraiser. We received a $500 donation from one of you -- bowled us over for sure -- as well as a $3 check from someone we know -- or at least surmise -- who doesn't have a lot of money to spare. Thank you.

Young Writers Project (YWP) helps thousands of young people from around the U.S. and world gain the confidence and skills to express themselves with clarity, power and respect. We do important work and hope that you will continue to support us in 2018. As you know, YWP manages this site for you -- for free -- and your donations are, additionally, a way of thanking YWP for its devotion to all things fiberous!

So Happy New Year. And enjoy this wonderful photograph from "lovetowrite" one of the community leaders on youngwritersproject.org

Peace,

Geoffrey Gevalt

YWP founder.

Guidelines and Ad Tips

Guidelines

This site offers free advertisements for anyone wanting to sell -- or find -- wool-related items from spinning wheels to fibers, from carders to books, from looms to animals. Those posting the ads are individuals or very small businesses. The site is run by volunteers so please be patient and kind. PLEASE remove your ad when you have sold your item, thanks! In exchange for these kindnesses, we encourage you to donate to our preferred charity, Young Writers Project, which is doing amazing things with young people. Thank you!

OUR AD GUIDELINES:

  • You must be an individual or a small seller,
  • You are responsible for being honest and forthright in what you are selling,
  • It is your responsibility to ensure safe delivery of products you are selling and sharing,
  • We are not responsible for any misrepresentations but ask that if you have a problem, alert us, WITH the link to the offending advertisement/community member,
  • If anyone violates our basic honesty code, we will make sure the ad is unpublished and the user is blocked and contacted.
  • PLEASE DELETE YOUR AD WHEN IT HAS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF! Do this as a favor to the community: nothing can be more frustrating to someone than to find an ad, follow up and find out that it is long gone. So when you sell, please come back and DELETE the ad. THANK  YOU!
