"In Our Own Write" Middle School Club Hosted Spring Writers' Contest

The glitter, markers, and stickers were abundant as the members of the Middle School magazine, In Our Own Write, worked to create posters about their Spring Writing Contest. The contest provided a great opportunity for students in the Middle School community to create submissions for the magazine, and students within the club were the editors and judges.  

“The kids made signs for a Spring Writing Contest they hosted,” said Middle School English Teacher and Faculty Advisor of the club Sara Goodwin. “By having a contest, they were able to get more submissions for our spring edition of the magazine.”

The In Our Own Write club is a place where Middle School students can really use their imagination and write without the fear of being judged. Sydney C. ’29 said the club feels like a home.  

“I love coming here because I’m with my friends and get to do editing and revising,” she said. “It’s a safe place for writing and it’s also a great place to go because Ms. Goodwin is super nice.”

The club puts out two publications a year, one in the winter and one in the spring. The magazine is all student-written, and includes poetry, short stories, personal narratives, memoir, etc. 

“My job is so easy because the student editors, artists, and writers are beyond talented,” said Goodwin. “Our Middle School art teachers, Romy Burkus and Liz Buckman, compile the student artwork for the publication. It is exciting to share these talents and these voices with our community.”

School a long and cruel thing
But if the one thing that we all love never came
What if just
What if
What if it never came
What if
We never left school and never went home
Just what if summer never came
No escape
