Regis Middle School Students Showcased in iWrite Anthology

Last Spring, several of Regis’ middle school students submitted short stories, poetry and cover artwork to the annual iWrite Publishing Contest, and five of our middle school students will be published in this year's iWrite anthology! Founded in 2009 by children’s author Melissa Williams Murphy, the iWrite contest is in its 11th year. Students in grades 3-12 in Texas, across the United States and around the world can submit short stories and poems to the contest, and 100 writers are selected to be published in the annual iWrite Anthology entitled I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids.

Regis congratulates the following students for their winning submissions to the contest and on their publication in Volume 11 of the I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids anthology:
