Meghan Powell: Creative Writing Publishing Project

2017 Mini-grant awardee

Students with their original books, written and self-published using publishing software technology. Writing projects could include a short story, novella, children’s book, poetry collection, etc. Most included a collection of their work from an entire year in creative writing class. (click figures for more details).

The students wrote, edited and published their own books online, learning about page formatting, indexing, copy editing and page proofing. They designed the entire layout of their books, including its cover.

The class also made an anthology of many upperclassmen’s original writing to share in the school library.

Students make a big step forward in becoming real published authors as they take their books home and share ideas with their family and the community.
