Pflugerville ISD celebrates student art and literature Saturday with Write Stuff

Pflugerville ISD will celebrate student art and literature at the 15th annual Write Stuff event from 9-10:30 a.m. Saturday at Park Crest Middle School.

Earlier this school year, students from all grades were invited to submit art, prose and poetry to be published in a district anthology. This year there were more than 475 submissions from students representing 17 PfISD campuses.

Write Stuff gives students a way to showcase their creativity. The artwork from the anthology will be displayed at the event, and students who submitted prose and poetry will recite their pieces.

Students will also learn how writing relates to engineering from Christina Soontornvat, who wrote the children’s books “The Changelings” and “The Ramble Shamble Children.” In addition, students will hear from local professional artist Shelley Schreyer, who is the director of Restoration Art Center in Pflugerville.

Park Crest Middle School is located at 1500 N. Railroad Ave., Pflugerville.
