LMS Writing Festival 2017

One hundred seventy-three middle school students competed in eleven creative writing categories at the LMS Writing Festival, hosted by librarian Charlene Burns. On April 5, excerpts of the writing entries were shared with guests during three, 20 minute rounds. Students and guests were treated to a visit with author Jennifer Brown followed by an awards ceremony. Forty-five certificates and medals or ribbons were presented to creative students. First, second and third ranked winners were also treated to a master writing class with guest author Jennifer Brown. Students learned new writing tricks and techniques as Ms. Brown passed out treats and signed bookmarks. A few lucky students also received advanced copies of Jennifer Brown’s next book.
