Three Massey students have recently been recognized for their excellent creative writing submissions to local writing contests for young writers.Melanie Grondin and Julia Miller represented the Masssey Mustangs in the Bookfest Windsor creative writing contest, earning a third place and a first place in the ‘Fourteen and older Poetry category’. Students who entered the contest were tasked with embedding the theme of rebellion within their work. The students who placed in the contest will have the opportunity to read their work at Bookfest Windsor, which will be held between October 25th and 27th at Windsor’s own Capitol Theatre and Arts Centre. The three day event will also include guest speakers and literary seminars.

Rachelle’s poem entitled “Weightless” addresses the 2012 Pluralist theme of the sensory world. Creative writing remains a strong focus at Massey. Students create a literary journal and a bimonthly school newspaper.
