Creative writing showcase slated for April 25

In April, imagination and fervor will be on display as Mexico High School hosts a showcase of creative writing.

Sponsored by the school’s Creative Writing Club, the community is invited to attend the first All Things Words and Wonderful: A Showcase of Creative Writing. Participants will show off their literary works such as poems, short stories, skits and more.

The event — featuring students, faculty and staff — is slated for Thursday, April 25 at 7 p.m. in the high school’s Avery Skinner Auditorium. Admission is free with the donation of a non-perishable good for the Mexico Food Pantry.

“It should be a wonderful and creative evening,” said Anne Michaelis, the club’s co-advisor and English teacher at MACS. “Students are working diligently to create their best pieces in preparation for the show.”

The club intends to host the event annually, said Michaelis, who noted that in future years the program could be expanded to feature the entire district and involve community members as well.
