Attention Teens: PA READS YA Needs You!

The creators of Bookish in the ‘Burgh, Pittsburgh’s Teen Book Festival, are seeking teen applicants to build and lead the vision of PA Reads YA, a new project designed to support the development of virtual and in-person young adult literature programs created by teens and for teens across Pennsylvania. Applicants should be teen residing in Pennsylvania.

All meetings will be virtual and tasks will depend on the interests and capacity of teens involved including marketing, event planning, community engagement, writing for blogs and newsletters, and more. An interest in teen books is great but not required. Teens with diverse interests, skills, and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Applications are due by March 29, 2021.
