Sarah Orne Jewett used writing skills, or was it magic when she wrote, “A White Heron.”  In 1886, her caldron was seven pages.  She put in a hop toad, a cow, birds, trees, a girl of nine years, a gun, a grandmother, a young man, a promise of money.  She created a timeless, poignant, relevant classic. 

      Have fun improving your writing skills. You will learn from your own, then from your classmates’ endeavors. Can you improve by editing or rewriting part or all of what and how Sarah wrote? 

     Please bring your edits to the zoom ‪guided by Tom Tepper.
