Writing

Warren Miller

Pete Ancone loves cars, writing stories, and running track. The death of his father pushed him into journalism to support his family, but years later, he wrote his first novel … about running.


Players By The Sea

A Jacksonville Beach community theater is offering aspiring playwrights the chance to bring their vision to life.

Players by the Sea is looking for writers with ideas for plays. The theater will help two lucky winners develop those ideas into full scripts, and then produce the premiere performances of the plays. The writers will also get a $2,000 stipend.

 

Players Associate Director Bradley Akers says the new, year-long program is called New Voices.

This spring, Florida students will take a brand new test tied to the state’s new math, reading and writing standards.

This is the test that replaces the FCAT. It's known as the Florida Standards Assessment, and it’ll be online.

What’s on the test won’t be the only thing different about the exam. Students will also find new types of questions.
