Brooklyn Public Library Teen Writing Contest 2013: The E-Book!

Over one hundred teens entered our teen writing
contest this  April. The quantity and quality of the
entries were so high that it was incredibly hard for our panel of judges to select the winners.

We compiled the winning entries into an e-book, ready for you to read online, on your e-device, or printed as a paper copy. The title of the anthology is Discovering Hidden Treasures: Works by Brooklyn's Young Writers, with a gorgeous cover designed by Meaghan Horner. Click here to read!
