For every session attendance and for joining the Writers’ Schoology Group (HMB45-HSRS5), student names will be entered in a drawing for a $10 Amazon gift card.

Schedule for writer’s week.

On December 10, students who are planning to submit to the Young Authors Contest and Scholastic Writing contest can get help. Students can generate ideas with peers, get teacher feedback and find out how to submit.

On December 11, students get the opportunity to bring out their crafty side. Participants will make a free card out of recycled dictionary pages. NEHS will be selling the cards in bundles of 6 for $12 to raise money for the local common reader scholarship. For information about buying cards, contact [email protected].

On December 13, seniors can bring in scholarship rough drafts to get teacher feedback.  Need ideas?  English teachers will help students brainstorm.

December 13, is The Watermark submission day, Students can generate ideas for the theme of A long Winter’s Night. If the submission is already written they can get teacher and peer feedback. If you have a love of English, and you still want to get involved please email Ms. Mary Troxel at [email protected].

“Writers week is an awesome thing that Linganore is doing, it is going to help students focus on writing narratives, not just informational text, what we usually do in class,” said Ms. Mary Troxel.
