Young Authors from West Jackson Middle School (Jefferson, GA)
Young authors from Ms. Melinda Wallace’s 6th grade class at West Jackson Elementary School were interviewed on this special edition of Gwinnett Business Radio.
All of the students participated in the Young Writers Program division of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. The challenge of NaNoWriMo was to write a 50,000 word novel (or meet their individual word count goal) during the month of November. The students were allowed to plan or design characters and plots or storylines up until then, but could not write a single word of their story until November 1st, and all had to be done by the end of the month. Students who successfully completed the challenge got to work with CreateSpace to publish their books on Amazon.
