West Virginia Young Writers 25th Anniversary

If it's May, it's time for West Virginia's Young Writers Celebration Day. This year marked the event's 25th Anniversary. Winners of every county's Young Writers Contests, along with their proud parents, grandparents, and teachers packed the University of Charleston's Geary Auditorium.

I was pleased and honored to, again, be asked to lead one of the Young Writers Workshops, conducting writing exercises for county winners in Grades 7 -9. Such talent! Click here to read the work of the first place state winners in each age category.
