Famous author, Cynthia Lord, spoke with FHPS middle school students about the craft of writing

Forest Hills middle school students recently attended a writer’s workshop featuring world renowned author Cynthia Lord.  While visiting with the students, Lord talked about her approach to writing and explained the “writer’s craft” to help students understand the importance of reading and writing, and the importance of the editing process.  Additionally, the students worked together with Lord to brainstorm a new story, and collectively they worked, step by step, to write a story during the workshop.

Lord spoke about ways to come up with ideas for writing, and then how to develop the idea once it is thought of.  She even showed students a “draft” copy of a book, complete with editor’s notes, and discussed with students the illustration process. Read more
