Author Inspires Young Writers
By T.J. A. and Addie M.
On December 15, 2011, author Justin Matott visited Mitchell Elementary. The whole school joined him for a special assembly. He told us some great stories. We learned he has written at
least 12 books, that a good story can take six months to write, and you need to be creative with your writing. He showed us how being funny attracts more people to your work. He also encouraged 4th, 5th, and 6th graders to use our imaginations during a writing workshop following the assembly.
