Event scheduled for Monday at Sidney Serious Coffee

Hannah Hryhoryshen and Katie Hammond

The final part of the writing process is sharing the finished product and Parkland secondary’s writing 12 class will showcase some of its best work to polish off a busy semester.

Each student tried his or her hand at a variety of genres, including short stories, dialogues and scripts, as well as different forms of poetry.

“I am always amazed at the talent students have as they are so willing to try new styles and share the process, as well as the final product,” said writing teacher Joan Saunders.

The class worked on refining personal voice and exploring what makes strong writing work.

“Writing class has created a whole new world of expression for me,” said student Katie Hammond.

Hannah Hryhoryshen agreed, “Working on my writing has allowed me to expand my creativity.”

Students also spent time trying to refine ideas and reflect on individual creative pieces. Sharing the work in class helped them to learn how to present the final draft.

“I like creative writing because it lets you flow through the ink to the page,” said Chelsea Wilson.

Parkland’s writing students will share with the community during a showcase at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 11 at Serious Coffee, 102-2417 Beacon Ave.
