Middle School Writers' Workshop
2018- Morgan Community College
Wayne Carlson, Blue Horizons volun-teer and disc golf enthusiast, started off the morning with an exercise to help students develop
a format when writing a story. He used his experiences with disc golf to inspire creativity in students.
Attending our Writers' Workshop on
January 17, 2018 were
46 middle school students
from Morgan County schools
including Wiggins, Weldona,
Ft. Morgan and Brush, as well as students from Prairie School.
Melanie Crowder was our featured speaker for the day. Melanie is a former teacher who is now a full-time writer of
young adult books. She has 5 books published and is working on a 6th. One topic she addressed with the students
is how much writers have to be willing to edit their writing before it is ready to publish.
Students had many chances to do original writing and share their writing during the day.
