Hamlin School Student Wins Novel Contest

1/7/20—Emily M., a student at The Hamlin School in San Francisco, won first place in a citywide novel writing contest called Kids Write Now! The program challenged kids between the ages of 10 and 14 to write as much as they could during the month of November. Inspired by writing advice she received from author Katherine Rundell during her recent visit to campus, Emily relished this opportunity and worked diligently drafting pages daily for a book. She completed a total of 106 pages in a month and hopes to finish the book by the start of the new year.
