Governor's School -- Summer 2008

Congratulations to Woodbury High School Junior Myra Galloway who has been accepted to the Governor’s School of the Arts (Creative Writing).

Every year 11th graders with talent in music, theatre, dance, visual arts and writing are invited to make application for one of the 115 spots in the Governor’s School of the Arts. The application process includes candidate auditions, or in the case of creative writing, the submission of prose and poetry manuscripts. The students’ work is then judged by professional artists in each field.

As a result of being selected for The Governor’s School of the Arts, this summer Ms. Galloway will take a course exploring poetry, fiction and drama leading to the creation of a personal writing portfolio 40 pages in length. Additionally, she will work with fellow creative writers to publish a magazine and read her work to various audiences.
