Inola freshman Vanessa Mason was one of only two high school students in Green Country chosen to have her work included in Northeastern State University’s Fall 2019 Talon Literary Journal. Her short story is titled “The Last Letter.” Mason has had a passion for writing since age 12 and hopes to one day become a successful author. Her other hobbies are painting and crocheting. The Talon Literary Journal features poetry and prose written by NSU students, faculty, staff and community members. NSU’s publication workshop class and Write Club publish the Talon annually.
