Writer’s Showcase

Writer’s Showcase 2020


Celebrate your school’s up-and-coming authors. We will exhibit poetry, mysteries, creative writing, historical fiction and other pieces of “published” writing crafter by elementary, middle and high school students living in out area. Celebrate your school’s up-and-coming authors.

Participating student authors, their families, teachers, and principals will be invited to our Writers’ Showcase celebration on Thursday, May 7, 2020. The event will be hosted at the Rancho Cordova City Hall at 5:30 p.m. In addition to receiving the prestigious Writers’ Showcase Award, participants will meet a local author and receive one of the author’s books. Cookies and a beverage will be served during the festivities. Follow the simple steps below and give your students a chance to showcase their writing!

How to Submit Writing Entries to the Writers’ Showcase:

• Invite teachers at your school to save student writing. This isn’t a special project or a competition; it is any writing done throughout the year that you and/or your student want to showcase! There is a limit of 50 students accepted and a limit of three entries per teacher, so time is of the essence. The first 50 to arrive will be honored.

• Collect writing pieces as a staff, small group, or individually. Please HURRY because we would like to have entries right away, no later than April 3, 2020.

• Mount the writing entries on colorful construction paper for exhibition.

• Attach a neatly printed and complete entry form on the back of the construction paper. (Student-generated books do not need to be mounted).
