Are you interested in creative writing or news writing but don’t know where to start? Honors Writing for Publication is for any student in grades 9-12 who wants to grow their writing skills and play with multiple genres. We’ll practice writing short stories, news articles, creative nonfiction, and more.The hands-on work of drafting, writing, and revising will largely be done during class time with minimal homework required. This is a wonderful opportunity to build your writing confidence, publish your work (a great addition to your college resumes!), and put your free time to good use. Students will also have a chance to aid in the production of the Spartan Review and the Lit Review.
**Next steps: if you’re interested, please reply to Ms. Evans and Mrs. Bowles. Note whether you prefer meeting during Green Period or during your free period**

National French Week
November 4-10, 2020
Athens Academy French Club invites you to join us in celebrating National French Week! Keep an eye out for posters with interesting French trivia displayed around campus! And here is today’s French phrase often used in English:
chef d’oeuvre: this term is used in both French and English to refer to a “masterpiece”. The word “chef” means “chief” and oeuvre means work – so this is the “chief work” of an artist (or of any highly skilled person in any field). Notice that we also use the word “chef” to refer to the “chief” or “head cook” in a kitchen!
When: Green Period every day, 6th period Monday and Tuesday
Where: SA210 (freshman/seniors) AND T103 (sophomores/juniors)
