Eleven students from R.C. Murphy Junior High School will be published in a writing anthology from Young Writers. Young Writers is an organization that gives students a platform to submit their works of writing to different contests. It aims to encourage young writers to enjoy reading, writing and poetry.

This fall, students in Jackie Shaw’s seventh grade honors class enrolled in the competition, “Twisted Tales: Flip the Script.” The contest challenged students to write a micro story of 100 words or less, taking on a villain’s perspective. The villain could be a famous one, an original creation or even something such as a natural disaster.

Congratulations to the 11 students who will be published: Elvin Gao, Holly Graff, Sabine Hecker, Madeline Kern, Julietta McKee, Roo Sabet, Mahira Shah, Caoilin Sharkey, Ryan Woltmann, Brandon Xu and Hannah Zdanowicz.

R.C. Murphy JHS will be receiving a copy of the book Young Writers publishes with the student work and will display it in the school library. Next semester, there will be prize drawings. The school with the best set of entries will receive the Young Writers’ Award of Excellence and three students will win an Amazon voucher.
