Published Poets at Western Union Elementary School

CJ Jeffcoat, Brody Helms, Brianna Kainer, and Savannah McManus with their soon to be published poems.

Four students, CJ Jeffcoat, Brody Helms, Brianna Kainer, and Savannah McManus, in Mrs. Bittner’s fifth grade class at Western Union Elementary School are going to be published authors. Last fall, students in Mrs. Bittner’s class were given the opportunity to write a poem that would be submitted for consideration to be published in a book.

Students who were interested had to plan, draft, revise, edit, and create a final copy of their poem. In November, the poems were submitted to Anthology of Poetry for Young Americans. Recently, four students in Mrs. Bittner’s class were notified that their poems were selected for publication.

According to Anthology of Poetry, approximately 55% of the poems submitted by students are selected for publication.

The anticipated release date for the book in which the student’s poems will be published is August 2011.
