Miss Anna Banar Fountain of Old Still Road in Woodbridge has had her poetry entry in the National High School Poetry Contest accepted for publication. Her poem entitled “Beckoning” appeared in a recent edition of the American High School Poets “Inside of Me” anthology.
“Inside of Me” is a meaningful study of introspective poems written by teenagers from all over the country. It explores what goes on inside the heads of today’s teens in those quiet moments when the outside distractions are finally turned down and one is alone with one’s own thoughts. It is a quarterly publication published by the Live Poets Society of NJ in conjunction with JUST POETRY!!! the National High School Poetry Quarterly Magazine.
Anna is the daughter of Robert and Mariane and attends Amity Regional High School under the tutelage of Language Arts instructor Allyson Wuerth. Anna plans to study emerging media and game design at Marist College.
