These six students are now published poets in a national poetry publication

February 3, 2010 - Six students from Bishop Alexander Carter teacher Lori Roy's Grade 11 English class didn't realize that by submitting their poetry assignment, they would end up as published poets in a national anthology. Ms. Roy had asked her students to write a poem based on their independent study novels. The students had 5 different books to choose from that all had to do with "us versus society". They were asked to write a comparative poem and were given the option at the end of the assignment to submit their work to Creative Communications which is a website dedicated to a "celebration of today's writers." Thousands of poems were submitted and only the best are picked to put into their yearly publication entitled "A Celebration of Poets". Poems submitted by Amanda Phillips, Austin Seguin, Evan Spurrell, Brittany Marmen, Stephanie Thorne and Kaitlyn Charette were all selected to be published in the book. "We were really surprised to be picked." said Marmen. "I would say that I am definitely inspired to start submitting more of my work to different publications in the future."
