Kylie Frederick, of Huntington, attended the Writers Workshop at Susquehanna University, in Selinsgrove, PA, July 7-13.
Frederick is the daughter of Rex Frederick and Elizabeth Shortridge. She will be a junior this fall at Huntington North High School, where she works on the school newspaper and yearbook and plays tennis. She is also class vice president.
Frederick participated in the fiction section of the workshop.
During the workshop, high school writers have the opportunity to work in intensive, small-group workshops headed by nationally recognized authors. Students attend individual conferences; workshops on college writing, literary magazines and publishing software; and readings by Susquehanna University faculty and guest writers.
At the end of the week, students have the opportunity to read their work before friends and family. Their work is also published in a Writers Workshop commemorative magazine.
