Students in fifth and sixth grade at Stokes Elementary were given the opportunity to become published authors by entering a
writing contest through Young Writers USA.
The contests had specific guidelines in which students had to follow such as, the writing could not contain more than 100 words and had to be completed independently. The students were
published in the books titled, Spooky Saga from October, and
Poetry Wonderland from February.
These books can be purchased through their website,
youngwritersusa.com and a copy of each book can be found in the Library of Congress in Washington DC. Nineteen students were published in Spooky Sagas, and 12 students were published in the Poetry Wonderland book.
