For Mitchell Middle School student Heather Franklin, writing is an escape, a necessity and a talent.
“It’s cool to know what other people think and what other people are dealing with. It just creates this whole new world for us to go to,” she said.
Franklin, who has been writing since the fifth grade, entered the 2010 National Council of Teachers of English Promising Young Writers Program — a contest that aims to stimulate and recognize writing talents and emphasize the importance of writing skills among eighth-grade students.
