Morehead Writing Project holds virtual writing events

The Morehead Writing Project (MWP) is offering a pair of virtual writing events. The first one takes place Oct. 26-27 and the second event will happen Nov. 2-3.   

The events coincide with the National Writing Project’s #WriteOut event. These virtual writing events are geared toward young writers in grades 6-12 and are by invitation only.  

Since the COVID-19 pandemic forced the National Writing Project to cancel many of its spring writing marathons, they created virtual writing marathons through collaborators like MWP. Dr. Deanna Mascle, instructor of English at MSU and director of the MWP, said MWP is collaborating with Rowan County Middle School in Morehead and Montgomery County High School in Mt. Sterling to construct a virtual writing marathon for writers in middle and high school. They are also receiving support from Dr. Alison Hruby, English education coordinator at MSU, and some of her students.  

MWP teachers with interested teen and tween writers can contact Mascle at 606-783-5280 or d.mascle@moreheadstate.edu to access the invitation for these virtual writing events.
