Authors of the Future will begin with a variety of students from Breathitt High School continuing their writing/illustrating dream. These students will have the opportunity to write and/or illustrate an anthology of short stories. They will learn, not only the writing process, but also the process that it takes to get a book published. They will learn the correct procedure for ordering the ISBN number, as well as how to apply for a control number from the Library of Congress. This grant will open the doors for a career, not only for the writers of the future but also the illustrators of the future.
