For eighteen years, I had the pleasure of hosting a monthly Writing Contest at Kensico School for Grades 3-5.  I loved the process of selecting a theme, creating flyers and certificates but, most of all, being able to read and celebrate the amazing student work.  I am currently working on a handbook for teachers interested in administering classroom, school and/or community multimedia contests in order to foster strong home/school connections.  Stay tuned for more on that!

One of my goals this year is to connect with a larger audience while exploring how social media can positively impact literacy.  Voila! Here’s the first monthly contest and it’s open for all ages!  Please feel free to offer any feedback.

The Dot is one of my favorite books to read in September. Its message of “create from your own soul” always sets a powerful tone for the school year, inspiring us all to try, just try, whatever the venture.

If you decide to participate, I look forward to seeing what you create!


As a writer and reading specialist, I wake up every day hoping to find the right words to create books, celebrate readers, and thank all the writers that inspire me every day.
