Paducah Tilghman’s McGee to Attend Kenyon Review Young Writers Workshop
High school students from over 40 states and several countries will attend this summer’s program. McGee will join 200 students who were selected from a competitive applicant pool of over 1,000.
Tilghman English department chairwoman Susan Hancock said of McGee, “Anna Grace writes with an effortless flow. She truly has a gift for expressing herself. Her enthusiasm is obvious, and she seems to enjoy immersing herself in whatever she is involved in at the moment.”
McGee is the 2015 state champion in poetry writing in the Kentucky Council of Teachers of English / Language Arts writing competition. She was named Tilghman’s Outstanding Freshman English Student, receiving the Vanderbilt University Book Award last year.
