Berry Miller student honored by iWRITE Literacy Organization

       Berry Miller Junior High eighth grader Emma Lundberg was selected for the second consecutive year to be honored, along with 99 student authors and illustrators nationwide, at the tenth annual iWRITE Luncheon & Book signing on Nov. 2.

       Every year, the iWRITE Literacy Organization holds a publishing contest for students in grades third through 12th to submit short stories, poems and illustrations. Through the years, 687 student authors and illustrators have been published from 11 different countries, resulting in more than 11,000 anthologies that have gone to print.

       Emma Lundberg’s short story titled “The Shell Necklace” will be published in the 10th anthology, I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids.

       At the beginning of the luncheon, a book signing will take place with all the student authors and illustrators autographing the newly published books.

       The iWRITE Literacy Organization was founded in 2009 by children’s author and public speaker, Melissa Williams, to increase student achievement and self-esteem through creative writing.
