Writers: start early!
Posted by Victoria Miles

 class= Victoria Miles with a budding writer at Kildala Elementary in Kitimat">This was one of those moments that makes the whole tour for me. I had a few minutes at the end of the visit to a class at Kildala Elementary in Kitimat to sit down with this student and read her story about a dinosaur who has lost his glasses. She both wrote and illustrated it and has already shared it with the school’s Kindergarteners. It feels good to be someone she wanted to share her work with. That’s sensitive stuff for a writer!

Jackson says he was a bad speller all through school. He dodged stories and essays when he could, but he did write jokes when he was a kid. He remembers one of his first ones, something about an NADP (Northern Alberta Dairy Pool) member who was also the MP from Milk River. I think I am not getting it down quite right here. Doesn’t matter, that early start led him to a career with plenty of comedy in it.

Kids: start early!
