Pittsburgh Regional Scholastic Writing Awards

I was honored to be the keynote speaker at the Pittsburgh Regional Scholastic Awards ceremony this week.

The event sponsored by The Western Pennsylvania Writing Project recognized the exceptional writing of students in Middle school and High school with awards in poetry, fiction, essays and memoir.

We are lucky to have these new voices, ideas, and passion in our writing community and in the world today. 

For me a motivation and an inspiration!

Places I Have Lived

Places where people are proud, gracious and welcoming.

Read and get to know them.

Share their dreams and adventures.

Books can help battle ignorance racism and prejudice.   Build awareness.

Encourage curiosity and understanding.
