Have you ever had that warm feeling? The feeling of pride and joy when you finish reading a book or an essay. Well, this feeling is all too familiar to the Creative Writing class at Springville Junior High.

Creative writing is an elective here at Springville Junior High, where students have the opportunity to write and express their feelings. Ms. Rachel Neeley, seventh grade English teacher, has been teaching creative writing for two years, and said, “I love teaching an elective. It’s fun! I love reading all the amazing things my students write. It is a great class. If you like to write, sign up!” 

Rachel Standley, eighth grader, agreed saying, “I took this class so I could be a better writer, there you can express your feelings freely.”  This class is open to all students who share there love for writing. Ninth-grader Sariah Morris said, “We do a different subject every two weeks, whether it's historical or scary. It’s really cool.”

With the freedom to explore the world of writing, students not only have fun, but learn new and interesting things. So you never know, one of these wonderful writers could end up as a  journalist, publisher, or maybe even an author. The possibilities are endless for these students and many others here at Springville Junior High.
