“Joining Writing Club was one of the best things I did my Freshman year. It is so much fun, and the students in it are so nice and beyond talented. Some of us are quiet or shy, but once we get into a conversation with one another, it’s like we had already been good friends.
There are a few different things we do in Writing Club: Sometimes we will be given a prompt and write whatever pops in our head about the subject. Other times Ms. Spiehler will pass out poems or excerpts of stories, and we either write what it makes us think of, or sometimes she tells us to continue the story, and then we will read what the rest of it actually was. It’s isn’t ALL work though; most of the time we are having group discussions about various topics.
Writing Club is extremely fun, and if you have a passion for writing, I strongly suggest that you go to room 304 and talk to Mrs. Spiehler about joining because it is a wonderful experience. I hope to see a few new faces next year!”
