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.
