READING AND WRITING
Rory C. Keel
Recently I had the privilege of participating as a Judge in the Panhandle Professional Writers Youth writing Contest. This contest is an outreach to encourage and promote writing among school age children. I am truly amazed at the interest in writing from the students that enter their pieces to be critiqued.
On several other occasions I’ve had the opportunity to speak at public schools on the topic of writing. The first point I usually emphases is –
“If you can read and write – YOU CAN DO ANYTHING!”
If a person can read with understanding and can write ideas, there is no limit to what they can accomplish.
