Young Writers Contest Update
On Wednesday afternoon, November 14th, James Clemens High School in Madison, Alabama hosted Huntsville Literary Association (HLA) member, Steve Gierhart, to discuss the High School Short Story Division contest, named in honor of Dorothy Hendry, a founding member of HLA. Steve was peppered with questions and obvious enthusiasm in the auditorium of this beautiful school that, like the Dorothy Diemer Hendry Award for Literary Achievement, is enjoying its inaugural year. Lucas Copeland and Anna Marie Shipman volunteered to be James Clemens’ student advocates for the Young Writers’ Contest. Mr. Lucas Powell, sponsor and English teacher, was gracious in his thanks for HLA’s participation. HLA looks forward to working with Lucas and Mr. Clay Combs who hosts James Clemens Creative Writing Class. Clay was unable to attend today’s festivities.
Time did not allow a complete discussion of details of the contest. However, students are asked to visit www.ArdentWriterPress.com for further details, including Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and a copy of the guidelines.
