Announcements: East Broad Student Named Savannah’s Best Young Author by Deep Center

Title

East Broad Student Named Savannah’s Best Young Author by Deep Center  

Body

An 8th Grade student from East Broad K-8 has been named Savannah’s Best Young Authory for Fall 2017.  13 year old Tyler Kipp was recognized last month for creative writing judged as among the most skilled, original, and fearless in the county. The Deep Center says it was Tyler’s honest personal narrative, “Anxiety,” that won him the honor.

145 students competed in the Deep Center’s Young Author Project in the fall of 2017.  The honor was voted upon by a combination of his program peers, the general public through a social-media campaign, and Deep’s staff.

 

The Deep Center runs the Young Author Project in 13 of Savannah’s 18 public K-8 and middle schools, and up to 55 percent of the students come from low-income communities. All Deep young authors, selected by their teachers, participate in a rigorous series of after-school writing workshops throughout the semester. Workshops are taught by volunteers, who are themselves dedicated creative writers.

 

Examples of Tyler’s writing can be found at the Deep Center website here: http://www.deepkids.com/deep-press.
