Guidelines for Socialgrlz TXTBook
SOCIALgrlz LLC is devoted to promoting and empowering young women. The mobile application will speak to the needs of African-American girls through articles, interviews, and a specially-designed book called the SOCIALgrlz TXTBook. With this textbook, girls will have an opportunity to use their voices through text messages to help craft the story. The SOCIALgrlz TXTBook will cover six specific topics – Lifestyle and Culture, Health and Wellness, Finance, Education, Leadership and Building Relationships.
Yours is a unique voice. We want you to provide must-see and must-do information from a girl’s perspective. So here are some basic rules to follow:
- Stay within the topic’s focus.
- Be creative and interesting in conveying your opinion.
- If using attribution to substantiate your points, cite the source
- Use spell check – even the best spellers need to take advantage of this fantastic aid.
- And last but not least, profanity is not allowed in submissions.
Submissions must include age and zipcode.
