Prairie Writers Workshop

 Story image 1_0


With the help of Maureen Hearty and her submission of the Prairie Writers Workshop grant, the students had the opportunity to participate in a writing workshop. During the first three Fridays of February, students Austin McCracken, Emma Peeples, Tate Schrock, Tristin Niccoli, and Sophia Niccoli under the supervision of Mrs. Peeples all worked with Gregory Hill and Tony Rayl of the Yuma Pioneer. Over the three classes they were taught about the process of printing a newspaper and different tricks to enhance their creative writing pieces. These students will publish an article in the Yuma Pioneer Newspaper, and they will also create their own newspaper with other articles and pictures. Keep an eye out for the articles in the Yuma Pioneer and the Prairie Writers Workshop Newspaper to read what our students have written and created! ~ Sophia Niccoli
