Students and parents gathered at Stone Hall Monday night to celebrate the publication of the book, “Ink In Our Veins” featuring original poems and short stories by students.
The 30 students are ninth to twelfth grade students from Visions in Education, who spent three months in class together as part of a writing workshop. Meeting weekly at a room at St. Paul’s Church in Benicia, this mix of homeschool and independent study students worked together to write the pieces that went into the final published piece.
The students worked with Sacramento-based nonprofit, 916 Ink, to create the final product, with this book being one of the 41 books the group has published with students. Program Director Brett Stults of 916 Ink said it’s classes like this that help kids really learn how to write.
