Cubeweb - Ezine and Writing Competition!


I have just been sent something that might be good fun if you are under 18 and enjoy writing.

Cube is a magazine for young people that you can get for FREE in Sheffield. But you don't have to live in Sheffield to look at it on-line as Cubeweb! Have a look at the website: http://www.cubeweb.org.uk/ A friend of mine has helped set it up, working with local young people, and it sounds really brilliant - you can see films and writing done by other young people, submit your own writing or ideas, and even chat to other people your own age on the Cubeweb forum.

And if you are between 13 and 18, this is a great time to have a look if you do enjoy writing, because they have a competition on called WriteAway. You can enter a story, a poem or even a letter or made-up diary entry, but it has to be about one of four characters you can find on the WriteAway website at www.cubeweb.org.uk/writeaway. Hurry up and look though, because the deadline is September 12th - that's just 3 weeks, which sounds a lot, but it will shoot by!

What a good magazine that is. It must be very popular with the teenagers. I have just dipped in and read an article on bipolar disease. Although I have experience of this condition, I still found it very interesting to read about it fro the 'inside'. I have put the web address into my favourites, and will certainly browse it from time to time, even though I am a 'wrinkly' and not a teenager!

Glad you enjoyed it! I suppose if something is well done it is interesting to everyone.

My friend will be very pleased.
