Published student poet


Middlebrook eighth grader Tessa Fieldman’s Girl on a Swing poem received honorable mention in the 2016 Connecticut Writing Project Student Writing Contest and will be published in the 28th issue of the Connecticut Student Writers magazine. Each year, more than 1,000 Connecticut students enter the contest, sponsored by the University of Connecticut’s Connecticut Writing Project, and submissions in poetry and prose from each grade level are chosen to be published or honored. As one of those selected this year, Tessa will be honored for her work at the University of Connecticut’s Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, May 11. Click here to learn more about Connecticut Student Writers.
