It has been said that the best way to improve a young person’s reading is to have them write. Writing focuses students on phonics, comprehension, mechanics, developing their voice or perspective, and communicating this perspective to others. And good writers make good students. In the June episode of Libraries Today, the show visits some very good young writers, including National Teen Poet Daniel Blokh and some of West Virginia's brightest young writers from the national writing and reading program - Letters About Literature.
