Xpress, the Coolest Section of the St. Petersburg Times, is the home for features, news and views of interest to young readers. Most of the work in Xpress, which appears on Mondays in Floridian, is produced by the Times' X-Team. The team of journalists ages 9-17 from around the Tampa Bay area is selected every year at the end of the school year to serve during the following school term. The current team of 12 was chosen out of 150 applicants. Watch for X-Team application forms in Xpress during the month of May.

February Xpressions is dedicated to horses and the people who love them. The poems, stories, artwork and photography capture the essence of the equestrian mystique. Story

Spend time with me!
Do you know how I feel about you spending time with me? I didn't ask if you knew what I said about how I feel about you spending time with me! I know what I say to you, and I know how I act when we are alone together. But some of the time, I wish you wouldn't read my body language and my lips. I wish you would do what your instincts tell you and spend time with me even if I push you away.


Xpressions, is a monthly showcase for the art, writing and photography of students through the 12th grade. Xpressions appears the last Monday of each month.
