JoeyHello, Mateys.

The Black-Ayed Pirates are having a story contest to find kids who can write like pirates. They are even giving “treasure” to the winners. Aye!

Stretch has been teaching me how to write like a pirate, so as soon as I think of THE BEST story, I am going to enter. If you think you can write a pirate story: grab a parent, read the rules, and get writing!

Goodbye, Mateys.

Joey Sanders
