Each year, Kansas Authors Club hosts a writing contest for youth. These entries, representing young writers third through twelfth grade, are a delightful look into the hearts and minds of today's youth.
"I am always struck by these essays. Kids tend to write a little bolder than adults. They have fun with the fantastical, and they make some seriously profound observations about the serious. Putting together this collection of essays, poems, and stories is a highlight of my year."
