Day Tripping: The Writer’s Workshop

October 14, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The undeniable harmony between the words and the notes was sounded in the preparatory workshop conducted by Ken Cormier, professor of English & Creative Writing at Quinnipiac University, co-sponsored by the district gifted committee.
Twenty students, recruited by writing and music instructors for their interest and talent in either medium, attended a three hour session hosted by Mr. Pinette in the BCHS Library.

Professor Cormier presented several engaging prompts; writing time was provided; sharing sessions celebrated several quality pieces of poetry, personal narrative, and fiction. Among the best responses to the personal memory of a specific piece of music was Sophia Torreso’s family parody of a Billy Joel classic.
