Dear trainees,

We had some wonderful essays --- In my promotion of "sharing" and the publishing end of the writing process, I've collected all the best essays from this session (but everyone in total did A GREAT JOB!). Only one exclusion , Ah, Seongsil's "Let's Eat Organic Food" which got 100%. If she is nice, maybe she can also upload and share here?
