For sixth and eighth graders only: the Writer’s Eye Contest, which will take place on Wednesday, October 20th, from 2:15 to 3:15PM. (Note that seventh grade ELA teachers plan on having all their students attend at another time.) Every year the UVA Fralin Art Museum hosts the Writer’s Eye Contest where students write a story or poem based on an inspiring work of art of their choice. This year we will be taking a virtual tour of the museum where students will learn about the art pieces selected for the competition and complete their entries before the submission deadline in November. Winning entries will be published in the yearly Writer’s Eye anthology. As we have a limited number of available spots at this time, I am only taking requests directly from students. If your child loves creative writing, please encourage them to email me at email@example.com.
