This program is sponsored by the Illinois Whole Language Council and Illinois Board of Education. The members meet after school for one hour a week and Corpus Christi teachers co-lead the club. Participating students write and illustrate a bound, laminated book. The books are then submitted to the Board of Education and state-wide awards are given.
Dr. Seuss, Marc Brown, E.B. White, Shel Silverstein, and J.K. Rowling-what do all these people have in common? They are all successful authors that use their creative writing talents to entertain people of all ages. Do you have a story that you would like to share with others and are interested in creating an original, one-of-a-kind book? Then the Young Authors Enrichment Program is for you.
You will get to create your own book, as well as participate in activities that will help your writing skills and encourage your creative writing. Writing your own story is an exciting task and Young Authors is here to help you make it the best story it can be.
