New York Times best-selling author Wendy Mass spent May 25-26 at Randolph Middle School talking to students about writing.
Mass, the author of books “Every Soul a Star,” “Candymakers” and “A Mango Shaped Space,” spoke to students at special assemblies for each grade and inspired them to read, write, set goals and follow their dreams. In addition, she hosted intimate writer’s workshops for smaller groups of students and led them on small writing exercises helping them focus on creating believable plots, settings and characters which were shared with the group.
Select students also met with the author during lunch to discuss her books and ask questions.
On a personal note, Mass shared some rejection letters she received for her writing and told students that perseverance is key.
