Just this last week, I started teaching an after-school, creative writing class. It should be noted that all of the students are in the 6th to the 8th grade, so much of the focus is to just get them excited about writing. My goal with the class is to cover the basics of creative writing and help light that spark that all of us writers have.
As the title of this posts suggests, I recently found out a couple good things that deal with my writing. The first is that my short story, "Lux Nauta," won an Honorable Mention in the Writer's of the Future contest.
