Frances loves to write, especially in her favourite spot—the barn loft! Encouraged by her aunt, she sends a poem to The Western Producer, hoping it will be chosen for the Young Co-operators' Club pages—a section of the newspaper just for young writers like her. And she waits ... and she waits. Will the newspaper editor ever print her poem?
