"I always thought paradise would be a kind of library." Jorge Luis Borges

My after school creative writing class this year was hands down one of my favorite parts of my teaching career. These rock star middle school students each wrote a piece to be published in our anthology and I'm making the prediction here and now that this is only the beginning. I will be the one waving around short stories in the New Yorker and newly published novels claiming to everyone I know that once upon a time these fine writers were in my class. These ones made my Thursdays, made my jaw drop with their creativity, made me laugh. I just adore them. So, all I'm saying is that this anthology was one of my best reads of the year.
