Melissa M. Williams Murphy is a children’s author, the founder of the iWRITE Literacy Organization, and the Executive Director of The Bryan Museum. She established iWRITE in 2009, after a year-long book tour where she heard elementary students ask her the same question over and over, “Can kids be authors too?” That question sparked the idea for the I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids Annual Publishing Contest, now in its twelfth year, giving students the opportunity to become published authors. Melissa has written and published twelve books for children ranging from Kinder-6th grade and presented to students in over 250 schools across Texas. She is most excited for her next big project through iWRITE and The Bryan Museum, to publish 1,000 students in the largest published book in the world and break the Guinness World Record!
