Maybe you consider yourself part of a fandom? Maybe you’re curious about fandoms or interested in making edits? My friend and I started an Instagram account dedicated to anything fandom related (you can follow us at @team.trenchcoat). We have both loved Doctor Who,Sherlock, Supernatural and reading in general for a long time. So, we decided to share our love for fandoms with other people. We post edits that we’ve created and edits that we’ve found, as well as other pictures and posts.
We here at Push to Talk do hereby resolve to keep bringing the funny, topical, awesome, and weird to you every day.
Of course, we need tons of help from you teens! Some of our best and most outstanding posts are written by y’all.
So, make a resolution to write a post for us this year. We love to have teens from all over Seattle write about your lives, your schools, books you read, movies/tv shows/plays you watch, music you listen to…you name it! It doesn’t have to be long-winded (that’s my job!) or perfectly written, just something you think other teens may find interesting. It doesn’t even have to be happy. We love the reviews where you tell why exactly you should never read a book. Or the things that make you crazy in books (we had a whole series around that topic!)
Oh, and the libraries are closed today. Srsly. Don’t come by, you’ll be disappointed. We’re open again tomorrow, visit us then! 🙂 Or choose something from our digital collections and find some inspiration to write a blog post!
Unchained is about a teen boy, Ben, who has been neglected his entire life by his parents. He figures out that to get by in life he just needs to be tough and everyone will leave him alone. He falls in with the local gang, but before he can be initiated in, he gets sent off to foster care. Living at Miss Dixie’s house is the best time of his life, but it’s not permanent. The gang is always there, pressuring him to join in and help them out.
From Seattle to Stockholm, these books explore the interactions between teens and mental illness. Featuring books about teens with mental illness and teens with mentally ill family members, these books are fundamentally about how mental illness changes what it means to be a teenager.

What do you think of when you hear the word poetry? Classrooms and books? Quill pens and English accents? How about teenagers just like us talking about what’s important? If the last one sounds interesting to you, try checking out these books about spoken word poetry! Continue reading →
The coolest thing about this event? It’s organized and hosted by several teens from Roosevelt High. They’ve hosted open mic nights at Roosevelt before, but this time, they wanted to invite teens from all over the city to participate. As Chris, one of the organizers, says, “Our group just really wants to put on an event that gives many kids in the school district a previously unobtainable perspective on student art, student performance and student voice throughout the entire school district.”
Don’t miss this chance to see teens from all over the city show off their amazing talent. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org!
