This project is designed to encourage, promote and recognize the creative writing talents of our local students.

Pen to Paper

The purpose of this program is to offer students in grades 6 through 12 the opportunity to be recognized for their literary works by selecting and publishing the best works we receive each year from
area schools. Artists are also recognized because the front and back cover as well as a center spread showcases 8 artists in each issue of Pen to Paper. A reception is held each spring with chosen authors
reading their works. This program allows students a chance to be recognized and encouraged for their contribution to the arts.

To preserve the creative integrity of our authors, the pieces are printed in the style and words as originally submitted by the writers.
