I wanted to write a post that would demonstrate how kind and creative these kids at writing camp have been this past week. Turns out they wanted to tell you themselves. So I’m going to step aside today and give you all the wisdom, insights, and art they want to share with the world. This will be the first published piece for many of these kids. Let’s cheer them on. Please comment with encouraging words!

Kids are the best. Several of the poems completed at class are going to be submitted for publication as well. Many of the longer books both started and finished will be treasured for years to come. Do you have a teacher, class, or moment that foreshadowed your writing today? I know I do.
A huge THANK YOU! To Alvah N. Blending Library for hosting this wonderful event.
