Club advisors Kristy Bjerk and Ashley Hammer-Paakkonen, both eighth grade language arts teachers at HMS, provided the necessary information, a little encouragement, cups of hot chocolate and the space to meet with fellow writers.

If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to forment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation."(written on March 31, 1776)
