All great writers had their beginnings somewhere!
In 2007-08, Writers in the Schools placed 25 writers in 73 classrooms to lead semester-long writing workshops with students. During this dedicated writing time, students experimented with poems, plays, fiction, creative nonfiction, and graphic novels. Students wrote about themselves, their families, their friends, and the world we all share. Their voices are indeed young and strong. A selection of their honest, wise, and funny work comprises this collection.
