Student writers have works published
Upper St. Clair High School freshman Emily Rhodes and junior Jacqueline LeKachman can add published author to their list of accomplishments. Writings by both students were among the top-rated submissions in the Ralph Munn Creative Writing Contest, sponsored by the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
Emily’s poem titled, “Carrion,” and Jacqueline’s short prose, “The Voicemail,” will be published in the “2018 Ralph Munn Creative Writing Anthology,” a book of creative work distributed to all Allegheny County public and school libraries.
All writers, including Emily and Jacqueline, will be invited to the Teen Media Awards, a special event celebrating the work of local teens on Aug. 11, 2018. The creative writing contest awards first place winners in each category with $250 and second place winners with $100.
