Escapism: Writing an Apocalyptic Story
Elizabeth Read

Lilly Kapanka '26

I researched how to write a short story and how to share my thoughts in the form of a book. I took inspiration from Lois Lowry and Sharon Creech and how they wrote about teenagers in tough situations to create my own protagonist. My SEEK product is a short story titled “Escapism.” It is a story of loss and sorrow, elements of writing that I improved upon as I researched. While writing I realized the depths authors have to go to in order to provide details for readers, and the challenges they face along the way.
