    Calvalcade of Authors West

    Imagine not only being able to meet some of your favorite authors, but also being able to learn about the craft of writing directly from them in small writing workshops! That is what is in store for 28 lucky Madison students this spring at the Calvalcade of Authors conference in Tacoma, WA. Amazing authors from all around the country will be gathering at one school--Curtis Junior High--on Saturday, May 9th in Tacoma, WA to celebrate reading and writing and teach students about the craft of writing. Madison MS will be taking a bus load of 28 lucky kids to this full day writing workshop.

    The cost is $20 per student, but full scholarships are available through our school fund.  Permission slips and money should be turned in to Ms. Bell in the library ASAP because it is first come, first served for those 28 spots. Students must also turn in permission slips before they can register for specific author workshops, so sign up with Ms. Bell before all your favorite workshops get filled up. To see which authors are participating this year and what the theme of each writing workshop will be, go to: https://www.coawest.org/2020-authors--workshops.html.

    Permission slips are available at the library or from Language Arts teachers. Contact Ms. Bell in the library with any questions.
