YALSA Welcomes Teen Bloggers

Do you know teen bloggers who would be interested in blogging for YALSA? Do you know teens who like to write about books, music, movies, etc. and would be a perfect candidate for a position as a YALSA blogger? Are you a teen that would like to write for the YALSA blog? If so, now is your chance.

At their meeting on Monday, January 14, the YALSA Board of Directors voted to include teens in the YALSA cadre of bloggers.

What do this mean? Well, first a teen that is interested in blogging for YALSA needs to fill out and submit a teen blogger application. The application will be reviewed and teen applicants will be notified of the decision.

Once a teen blogger is accepted, a blogging account will be setup for that teen and information on how to use YALSA’s blogging software will be provided.

This is a really exciting opportunity for teen writers. If you have any questions about being a teen blogger – or helping a teen in your community become a blogger – contact me, the YALSA Blog Manager, at lbraun@leonline.com

  1. What a great opportunity! I am too old to apply, but I will definitely tell my customers who are in the proper age range. I’ll also post about this at my blog right now. Is there a deadline for entrants?

  2. Linda Braun [Member]

    Little Wllow thanks for helping get the word out. This is an ongoing part of the blog so there is no deadline.

    I am really interested in being a teen blogger, but I was wondering if it mattered exactly what age of teen you have to be, because I’m 13, would I still be able to do it?

  4. Linda Braun [Member]

    DottieLoves thanks for your interest. 13 is our minimum age so you are set on that. Fill out the application and send email it to me – the email is on the application.
