Strokes of Lightning: Amazing Hero Stories The Bay Area Young Writers Anthology Volume I: Welcome to the wonderful imagination of Bay Area Young Writers! These characters and many more are the heroes in this collection of writings by 37 children, ages 6 to 13. Strokes of Lightning is the first anthology published for the Bay Area Young Writers Club, a growing community with over 100 members. These stories are culled from the many workshops that we teach in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our workshops include a weekly homeschooling group, a persuasive essay course, an after-school creative writing class at the Chinese American International School, Bay Area Young Writers Workshops, as well as a plethora of free workshops offered since 2009. Our dedicated young writers and their parents travel from all over the Bay Area to our programs in Mountain View, California. While our writers show varying levels of skill, all the entries represent hours of creative effort and revision. For us, what is most important is that these children are inspired to write for fun and can articulate their thoughts and ideas with power, clarity, and ease.

This was strange because Mrs. Jones went in the janitor?s room almost every day. As he took a closer look, he noticed four security cameras, one in each corner. One was pointing directly at him! He knew the only way he could not be caught was to venture forward. He used a paperclip to pick the janitor?s room lock. After at least a minute, he had done it. Now I have to take out the c
