All of the pieces were composed in Moira Egan’s Creative Writing class, in response to the now-traditional “Spring Trip Travel Writing” assignment. Congratulations are due to Marco Ventura, grade 9, Laura Rizzo, grade 11, Sofia Peng, grade 9 and Isabella Todini, grade 11. We are sure that you will enjoy reading their fine work in the next issue of The Cortile, online next week.
