2019-2020 YOUNG AUTHORS
"The Magical Power of Words"
Young Authors are encouraged to write about how words have impacted their lives, or the lives of others. They may write about the power of words in their lives, whether those words have been positive or negative. Authors may choose to share the story behind special words, like their name and its origin, or a special nickname and the story behind it. Authors may choose to share about the impact of words on themselves, other individuals or society as a whole. Authors may write about words and their power to open the lines of communication, or may write about their experiences learning a new language and how those words have impacted their lives. (These ideas are not exhaustive, but meant merely to serve as ideas to get you started.) Authors may write prose or poetry, fiction or nonfiction.
