Figment: Write yourself in. via kwout

Have you heard about the awesome new social writing network Figment?

Figment is a community where you can share your writing, connect with other readers, and discover new stories and authors. Whatever you’re into, from sonnets to mysteries, from sci-fi stories to cell phone novels, you can find it all here.

The New York Times describes Figment as:

“…an experiment in online literature, a free platform for young people to read and write fiction, both on their computers and on their cellphones. Users are invited to write novels, short stories and poems, collaborate with other writers and give and receive feedback on the work posted on the site.”

If you enjoy reading or writing, give Figment a try! Check out these sections of Figment:

We are almost ready to begin checking out Kindles to you, our students!  If you would like to check out a Kindle, you’ll need to come by and pick up a copy of the student permission/acceptable use form OR download the student permission/acceptable use form and review with your parents (and does require a signature from both you and a legal guardian).  Once this form is returned, you’ll be on the waiting list to circulate a Kindle.   If there are specific titles you are interested in purchasing, come by and see us as well for a form or download it from the LibGuides page.
