The sun was blazing, a great author was visiting, students were ready to share - it was an amazing day watching young writers and illustrators read their stories! Thank you wonderful volunteers (40+), your support made a difference. The groups were small, insuring plenty of time for each author to read their story and receive comments from their peers.
The day was kicked off by author/illustrator Richard Jesse Watson. He inspired by sharing his beginning as a writer and how he begins stories and the process he takes to publish. After lunch, he gave two interactive workshops on the art of illustrating. After school signed books and student art.
Hopefully your child's story they shared made it to their digital portfolio. If not, let me know and I can support you with scanning and uploading. My pleasure.
