Please upload your submissions using this Google Form.

In January of 2019, students from the Writing Center plan to publish the third volume of their literary journal, “Hobnail Boots.”  The student-curated publication will include short stories, essays, poetry, art, and photography created by members of the FA community. Students, alumni and staff are encouraged to submit their work.

The journal will be published and printed by the end of Semester 1.

If you have further questions, see a member of the writing center, Mrs. Wright, or Mr. Miller.

The Writing Center

The Writing Center is a service provided by trained Foxcroft Academy students to help anyone in the FA community become a more confident writer. Our Writing Coaches are trained in a semester-long course that helps them to become proficient in writing and one-to-one tutoring.

The Writing Center is located on the third floor, next to IT. It is open periods 1AB, 2B, 3AB, 3AB and 5AB.

Mission

The Writing Center aims to improve the culture of writing at Foxcroft Academy, thus contributing to the school’s overall mission and supporting the notion that “Knowledge is Power.” Our goal is to provide a safe environment for any student to request help and receive support related to all forms of writing at Foxcroft Academy. Writing Coaches will never judge, only guide, discuss, and build upon a peer’s writing. We hope to provide students with skills needed to continue to build their personal writing abilities.
