My old middle school in Pitman participated in this contest. It was actually the first place I ever recieved publication for my poetry. Having my poetry published in that anthology convinced me that I could write creatively and inspired me to pursue creative writing.

It is nice to see that Woodbury Public Schools are also participating in this contest. Maybe some of the students will become as inspired as I was to pursue creative writing.
