Publishing Historical Fiction Narratives

Class members discover what it means to publish their works. Working on a computer, young writers use an online dictionary to edit their spellings and conventions based on the information added to the rubric. From here, and for the majority of the time, they type up and print their final historical fiction narratives on the computer.
