by Nancy Simpson

1 800 FOLK SCH

Do you write short fiction, personal essays, or poetry? It does not matter. The important question is - What's In Your Writing Folder?

Come spend one week writing at the John C. Campbell Folk School, the specific week of September 13-18, 2009

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Pull out your writing folder, whether filled with stories, poems, essays or almost empty, and come write what you want. This class will trigger new writing and will keep you on track and moving toward the finish. Get encouraging feedback from your instructor and classmates. How and where to publish will also be discussed. All levels welcome.

The class begins on Sunday and ends at noon on Friday.

Come write in our new writing studio. The typewriter is only a decoration. Each student has a writing station with computer and printer access. The focus of the class will be on short story, personal essay and poetry. There will be class time and private time for you to write. There will be time to share your writing with others. The class will give a reading for the school at the end of the week.

I always enjoy studying under you. I love taking classes at the John C. Campbell Folk School. It's just a peaceful environment that moltivates people to write. You're a great teacher. We appreciate all you do for NCWN-W.

Nancy Simpson said...

Brenda, You are a Dear One. Thank you for saying this. I tell everyone that Brenda Kay Ledford is my claim to fame, not my own poems but your success as a writer. You are my Number One most accomplished student. Thanks so much.

Sounds like a great class Nancy-I hope it goes well.

I urge anyone, who has the opportunity, to take this class with Nancy Simpson. As one of her students for many years, I have benefited in various ways from what I learned with Nancy. If you are a beginning writer or a more accomplished writer, you will come away feeling more confident armed with a vast knowledge of writing and becoming published.

Hello Glenda, Thanks. You're my other number one most accomplished student, having become the Netwest Program Coordinator, having become a Writing Instructor, and now with your own poetry collection going o press. I am very proud of all you have accomplished. Thank you.
