Young Authors

Young Author’s 2018

The Fayetteville Public School elementary libraries are sponsoring the Young Author’s program.  Students at each elementary may enter a piece of work for judging (by a committee consisting of current and former teachers using the ACTAAP writing rubric).  

This is not a classroom assignment/activity, although work completed in class may be “polished” for submission.  

Students with the ten top-scoring works from each school will participate in a special writers’ workshop featuring author Gordon Korman on October 29th at Fayetteville High School.
