Young Writers Gather

Over 100 students gathered recently with author and artist Barbara Santucci at the Mayville Pavilion to explore the world of writing. The fourth through eighth graders participated in the 10th bi-annual Young Writers’ Conference as Santucci shared her own methods for creating story ideas, writing drafts and fine tuning the final story line. Under Santucci’s guidance, the young writers journeyed through the various steps from initial idea to completed work of realistic fiction. Starting with development of settings and characters, some of the young writers found it difficult to avoid the world of fantasy as they created their story lines.

By the end of the day, each of the students was well on the way to producing their final draft of an original work. When compiled, each participant and school will receive a copy of the collective effort.
