On Saturday, April 4, 2015 I attended the inaugural Youth Writers' Showcase presented by the Black Writers' Guild at Enoch Pratt Free Library (the Pennsylvania Avenue Branch). This panel was moderated by Anthony McCarthy of the Anthony McCarthy Show (WEAA 88.9 FM).
The youth panelists included:
Ethan Taylor - Author of two self-published books
Jayana Wood - African American Expo Writers Award Recipient
Alex Rene - Co-Author of the upcoming Amnesiac Prince Trilogy
Michelle Bao - Second place winner of the Howard County 2015 Martin Luther King, Jr. Student Essay Contest
Amani Ross - Winner of the WJZ 2015 Black History Oratory Competition
I was very impressed by these youth writers and applaud them in finding a format to express themselves. Mr. McCarthy did a great job of keeping the audience engaged by asking the panelists questions that sparked thought provoking answers. These youth were truly inspirational!
