Stone Students have the Write Stuff!

Summary only available when permalinks are enabled.
The Brevard County Writing Contest is sponsored by the Brevard Council of Teachers of English. The contest covers genres from poetry to journalism and concludes in the spring with the publication of the book Celebration, a collection of the contest’s winning entries from the best student writers in the county and a teacher and student awards ceremony for student writers and their teachers.
These students will have their work submitted to the county-wide

Here are more achievements:

We have three students who have gone on, this year, to publish in the real world. 

Justin R.
has had his poem Memories accepted for publication in a national Literary quarterly. 

Kyle W. essay, Digital Disasters, will be published in Literary Liftoff, the quarterly of the Florida Writers’ Association, and will be available nationally.

Ashley P. will have Phoenix Academy, her short story, published in the upcoming issue of the literary journal dedicated to Florida writers.

These are paper and print journals where the students went head to head with professional adult writers and were not only deemed worthy of publication by editors and critics but are being paid for their work being published. This is quite a feat. They deserve to be congratulated.

We hope to have even more successful student writers before the close of the year.
