Fairfax School Young Authors Conference needs volunteers
Students at Fairfax Elementary School will spend the month of May writing, revising, illustrating and binding their own works of fiction. The first annual Young Authors Conference will center on the theme Journeys, as students create individual tales of trips to places real or imagined.
Volunteers are needed for many different tasks:
- Helping the students bind their books in Art class during the weeks of April 30–May 4 and May 7–11.
- Guiding pairs of students through peer conferences during the revision and editing stage, May 14–18. (Volunteers will receive a brief training for this.)
- Typing the students' final drafts. This can be done at home, on your own computer on your own time, between May 22–29.
- Donating old wallpaper samples for the book covers.
