I was wrong. May 16th is NOT National Flash Fiction Day. That'll be in June 15th in the U.K. and the 22nd in New Zealand. I don't know if we even have one in the U.S.

With each Life Lab Notes episode, we strive to illustrate how much we humans share, but this episode is perhaps just a bit more personal and universal.

In “Info-Trans Report: The Holidays” we find out what L’Seth Navi and Krraz have been assimilating about human holidays of fall and winter (spring and summer, in the southern hemisphere, of course). And, for the first time, we meet another Broglian - their Esteemed Sector Commander.

Each spring, Theatre of NOTE in Hollywood has a mini season of five 10-minute, one-act plays, produced by a professional team of actors and directors. And written by high school kids.

The Young Writers Project has been around for over fifteen years, which means hundreds of students have been coached by professional writers from Theatre of NOTE (in addition to working with their high school drama or English teachers) and hundreds of short plays have been submitted. But only five can be produced each year. 

The choosing of which plays to produce is challenging and poignant. All of the plays submitted represent hours of creative work, and some of that work results in a deeply thoughtful and/or surprising piece for these students. 

To honour these young writers and Theatre of NOTE and the Young Writers Project, I interviewed some students from a participating school. Ten plays were submitted from their school, one was chosen to be produced. I met with five of these kids to talk about writing, their voice, and not being chosen.
