Stephannie's Story

My passion is writing.

Throughout middle and high school, me and my brother spoke about hundreds of different books and TV shows that we watch. We talked about different things we liked about them and things we would change. He would share the research he'd done on Hercules, his favorite Greek hero, and the plans he has for writing his book series. What I'm trying to say is that I found my passion for writing through my brother.

I love to write and I feel like I have many great ideas. However, I feel that I need more experience and advice and tutoring to make my writing better. Attending Writopia Creative Writing Workshops will help me to do that.

A Note from Ms. Montera, Stephannie's Teacher

Stephannie reads constantly! She always asks for books from her family for holidays and her birthday and is excited to talk about them. She talks at length, unparalleled by her peers, about her experiences with novels, opinions, and realizations she has after reading.

She has told me often about her desire to write and has asked about how she can get better about putting her ideas on paper. Her creative works I've read as assigned in class were written with passion, detail, and true ideation of the craft.
