Celebrating My Young Authors

I have to give a "shout out" to my Young Authors' Club. We had our last meeting this past Monday. What started out as fifteen fourth graders who were interested in writing, ended with nine authors who worked hard, and now have their own printed anthology!

We created the first ever AES Aggie Anthology this year. It is a 25 page, soft-cover book filled with short stories, poetry, and personal essays. I am so very proud of this group. As I told them Monday, no matter who joins the YAC in future years, they will always be my first ever!

I look forward to seeing more of their work in the future, and I hope each of them continues to write and finds a mentor who can help them grow even more.
