Article Submission for School Magazine

Article Submission for School Magazine

Dear Parents & Students, 

Thank you students and parents. We have received an overwhelming response this time for our School Magazine. Your contribution in the form of articles is indeed appreciable. This is a message for those, who still have some very interesting ideas lying deep-down in their thoughts, but are somehow reluctant to come on paper. Come on dig them deep and let them out. Encourage your children to write too.

Your fame to name (in our magazine of course) is just an article away. The last date for submission is only a week away i.e. 15th September, 2016.

                                      If I waited till I felt like writing,

                                     I’d never write at all… Anne Tyler.

Regards
