Seven Scotland County R-I students will become published authors after their work was recently selected to be part of the 2015 Fall poetry contest by Creative Communication.

Members of Denice Blaine’s English program participated in the Poetic Power contest sponsored by the Utah company.

Poems by Nate Sevier, Ewan Carleton, Zoe Tinkle, Hailey Kraus, Kyra Justice and Shaylee Davis were selected from the participants in Blaine’s 7th grade creative writing class.

Creative communication will publish the poems in a hardcover anthology and the school will receive a free copy of the book. The company has been working with schools and teachers for over 20 years to promote writing.
