IRONWOOD - The second meeting of the Kids Writers and Illustrators club encouraged several students to draw pictures and create stories to describe the one item they would bring to a deserted island.

The Kids Writers and Illustrators Club meets Tuesday nights from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the elementary cafeteria at Luther L. Wright School.

The program, sponsored by the Ironwood Carnegie Library, aims to help young students develop creativity through writing stories and drawing pictures.

Attendance doubled since the first club meeting. Club advisor Lynne Wiercinski said, "I'm pleasantly surprised by the interest."

Wiercinski introduced the students to their first activity by reciting a story about a shipwreck near a deserted island. The students drew pictures and read their stories aloud.

Seventh grade student Mercy Kennedy assisted Wiercinski in holding the activities.

Wiercinski plans to bring in guest authors and illustrators to speak to the students and allow them to "gain a different perspective."

She plans to continue the program through the remainder of the school year.
