Sunday poemWe are reviving our Sunday Story series here with a visit to Raleigh’s Meredith College. Every summer for the past decade Meredith College has hosted rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade young women on their campus for a young writers camp. It is a week for young women to spend in imagination, creativity, and fun with director Ashley Hogan at the helm guiding writing exercises led by published faculty teaching fiction, poetry, drama, and creative nonfiction. We are excited to highlight the emerging talent of these young writers as they polish their craft.Summer Dayby Ava Sutton (age 11)On a summer day,Under a tree as meant,The leaves shapes like a tent,With grass like tiny needles,Moving as fast as beetles,Birds chirping with motivation,I want to hear their conversation,Time is frozen,Like I’ve chosen,And birds diving in a “U”,And I’m stuck here with you.
