Writing Challenges: Inspiration and ideas to spark your creativity every day

Who are you and what is your life like as a teenager in 2023? In words or images, explore, but don't feel limited by, questions such as:
  • Who are you at your core? How, when, or where do you most feel like your true self?
  • What most inspires you? Where do you find awe, joy, contentment, kindness, love?
  • What are the major influences in your life – people, places, ideas, creativity, the arts? How do they help to define who you are, what is important to you, and what you hope for in your life?
  • What issues are teenagers facing that adults don’t understand?
