Part of an author Q & A I participated in was filmed for an Emmy-award winning local TV show, and I was even quoted briefly in the final cut! It's amazing to see the hard work these 8th graders put in to complete the NaNoWriMo challenge--something many adults don't do. Many thanks to Kristy Shurina at Bridgewater Raritan for putting this wonderful learning experience together for the young authors.

NaNoWriMo - Eighth graders from Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School participate in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) creating stories from 12-60 pages. Students revise, and edit their drafts. The high school honor society students help them edit on line. The PTO provides a grant to have the books published so each student gets a hardback copy.
