Writing South Carolina : Selections from the Second Annual High School Writing Contest (Vol 2)
about this item
“All of you who contributed to this book write much better than I did in high school.” That remarkable observation was made by Pat Conroy in the foreword to the first collection of student writing generated by the South Carolina High School Writing Contest, and it embodies the contest’s goals: to encourage young people to write, to think deeply and creatively, to express themselves and thereby to recognize and cultivate their abilities. This second volume of Writing South Carolina features the insightful and inspiring entries of each of the twenty-nine winners and finalists: high school juniors and seniors who were challenged to share, using any genre, their ideas for making South Carolina a better place to live.
