My Take
Youth Voices can be used as a stepping stone for many students who may struggle for inspiration in creative writing. The site organizes posts by topic and multiple forums foster different types of expression, which I think allows for the perfect amount of structure in this form of student expression. Finally, the site's nature as a social networking platform allows students to connect with other teens from all over the country--which in turn exposes them to multiple viewpoints and stories.
