North Logan Library to hold a short-story writing competition for teens

Once a month, KVNU’s For the People program highlights activities going on in North Logan city.  On this past Thursday’s show our guest was Jameson Smith, a professional voice actor, who you may have heard on radio advertisements for North Logan. He’s also involved in a podcast called ‘Storyboards’.

He says it’s a platform where he and a friend discuss creative processes, how people come up with ideas, sometimes on-the-spot. Then they have a dramatic reading of stories at the end of the podcast. Smith says they’ve released 10 episodes.

“We’ve been able to partner with the North Logan Library, because I’ve been doing (many) adverts for them. We got talking about ‘Hey, it’s been a long time since anybody in the valley has done a writing competition.’  And so we’ve gotten together to be able to make this short story writing competition for teenagers in the valley,” according to Smith.

He says the competition is for grades 6 through 12 and the winner and their story will be featured on Storyboard. Smith says they are also doing some workshops that started last week. For the next three weeks, people can come in Tuesdays and Thursdays and practice their writing. And that’s not just for teens but for anyone who would like to come.

For more information on the competition visit www.NorthLoganLibrary.org.  To hear Storyboard you can visit PodBean.com and search for “Storyboard”.  It’s also available on Youtube.
