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:
Only the Stars
The Solitude of Space
Not only will the anthology showcase these talented authors in this year’s publication, but our own Lucas Garza, 6th grade, won the cover art contest for Volume 11, and his work will be featured on the cover of the anthology!

The mission of the iWrite Nonprofit Organization is to build writing confidence in students, helping children achieve success through publishing at a young age, with the goal of inspiring students to strive for additional successes in the future in order to reach their full potential in life.
The iWrite contest is free to enter, and this year’s award-winning, published authors will all receive their own copy of Volume 11 of the anthology as well as gifts from the competition’s sponsors. We are very proud of these published authors, and we cannot wait to celebrate their success!
