Writing for Good: Finished Letter to the Editor

I normally don’t make posts like these, but I absolutely HAD to make an exception. I spend a lot of time musing back and forth with this young man, Kirby McDowell. He loves writing and frequently comes to me for advice and experienced opinion.

Right now, he is making WAVES with this letter to the editor at the Ottumwa Courier concerning the new school grading scale. It upset people. It pissed people OFF. But more importantly… they’re TALKING.

This is what you should be aspiring to be when you write. Good words, stirring words, move people to action. At 17 years old, that’s a helluva way to start off your writing career. You can see the original post at his wordpress blog below.
