The Comet

Katie thor Straten
Hello! My name is Katie thor Straten, and I am a junior on the newspaper staff. I enjoy writing, reading, and making art. I take this class because I want to get experience in writing articles and I am becoming very passionate about it. I started writing in middle school in the literary club when every year we would team up and write a story and submit it to the Kids Are Authors competition that is run by Scholastic. At the end of the year we ended up writing a literary magazine. I did this freshman year, and I enjoyed it so much so I came back when I had an empty period :)
