Write With Jason Reynolds!

   Jason Reynolds

In his new role as National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, Jason Reynolds will connect directly with young people online during the coronavirus pandemic, in collaboration with the Library of Congress, the Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader.

On April 14, 2020, Reynolds will debut his first initiative in support of his platform GRAB THE MIC: Tell Your Story—including a monthly newsletter for parents and educators focused on relevant topics of the day and a biweekly video series intended to inspire creativity in young people, titled “Write. Right. Rite.” 

In each “Write. Right. Rite.” video episode, Reynolds will address young people directly and provide helpful ways to express creativity through various prompts and activities. Videos will be posted twice a week (Tuesday and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. EST) through April and May 2020, with more videos to be posted throughout the summer. Viewers are encouraged to share their projects on social media using the hashtags (#WriteRightRite and #tellyourstorywithjason).
