Eighteen talented students grades 7-12 from the public schools of Cape Cod arrived at the Barnstable Intermediate School on March 15 to participate in the Cape Cod Writers’ Center Tomorrow’s Writers Today Program.
Our fiction instructor was Kevin Symmons, novelist and former president of the Cape Cod Writers Center Board of Directors. Nancy Rubin Stuart, journalist/author and Executive Director of the Writers Center taught the students about nonfiction.
Nearly unanimously, the students felt they enjoyed the program and learned a great deal.
Here’s a sampling of their comments:
“The course is AMAZING!”
“They further developed my understanding of fiction and nonfiction and greatly increased my writing skills.”
“They explained what and how good writing happens and experimented with several forms with us.”
“It was very helpful defining the basics of being a successful author.”
“They gave us useful exercises that actually made us think!”
“I learned many things I didn’t know before!”
“They gave us helpful pointers and encouraged us to continue to do what we were doing right.”
“Keep it going. It’s always great!”
“It was awesome and I learned so much from the program.”
With appreciation to Sovereign Bank whose generous contribution made this program possible.
