    Student writers have works published

    Ralph Munn Writing Contest Three Upper St. Clair High School students – sophomore Skyler Bruno, senior Eden Auslander and 2019 graduate Sarah Price – recently became published authors. Their writings were among the top-rated submissions in the Ralph Munn Creative Writing Contest, sponsored by the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.

    Skyler’s short prose titled, “Snapped Guitar Strings Can Be Repaired,” and poems from Eden and Sarah titled, “Analyzation of Procrastination” and “A Different Battle,” respectively, can be found within the “Ralph Munn Creative Writing Anthology 2019.” The anthology is available online as well as in hard copy at all Allegheny County public and school libraries.

    • Skyler Bruno, grade 10: “Snapped Guitar Strings Can Be Repaired” – pages 97
    • Eden Auslander, grade 12: “Analyzation of Procrastination” – page 119
    • Sarah Price, class of 2019: “A Different Battle” – page 142
