Authorship 2016


MidSun School recently had the opportunity to host a special guest speaker on Tuesday, April 5th named Adria Laycraft.  Mrs. Laycraft works as a professional writer, and editor and was able to share some of the ins and outs of the publishing world with students who self-identified as budding writers in grades 7, 8, and 9.  The presentation was very informative and students were able to learn how to take their work to the next level and eventually even get paid for it!  We look forward to seeing more MidSun students get themselves published!  Go ahead and write that story, find that market, follow those submission guidelines, and get published, Lakers.  We believe in you!
