As part of the Write for Mississippi Organization Project, Nancy Dorman-Hickson spoke to two of Lyn Blaylock’s classes at Eupora High School.
The author, a Starkville native and Birmingham resident, spoke to Blaylock’s Creative Writing/Mississippi Literature class and English IV/Composition II class on April 13.
During the first class, students questioned the author about her many articles and opportunities to write. She presented information about her time working with numerous magazines and her collaborative memoir of JoAnn King Herring, “Diplomacy and Diamonds.”
During the second presentation, students brainstormed issues and problems concerning them and ways they could contribute to the change. Student writers examined their characteristics and qualities that they possess that could help make a change.
Students participated in a lively discussion with Dorman-Hickson as they brainstormed ideas for change projects and essays.
