Nine West Forest Elementary students in fifth grade were selected by the Young Writer’s Association for publication in Spooky Sagas 2019 – From the Shadows. Students were asked to write a short story (a spooky saga) consisting of one hundred words or less, in order to be eligible for a nationwide writing contest for young writers. The contest was well received and over 10,000 entries were received by the deadline of November 1. These students from West Forest Elementary were chosen and will have their stories published. Not only will West Forest Elementary receive a copy of the book, but also a copy will be sent to The Library of Congress in Washington DC. What an outstanding achievement for these young writers!
