Education Coordinator Named

In order to expand our opportunities in education, the LWC Advisory Committee has created the role of education coordinator, and we are excited to announce that Cece Dockins has accepted this role.

Cece graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in writing in August 2010. She is currently applying to MFA programs, and plans to write full time and teach. Learn more about Cece and her writing by visiting her blog (The Black Ichor Blog) and Web site.

Cece's primary role will be to plan and coordinate our 5th Thursday sessions and to be your point of contact for education-related ideas and needs. She will also be a new addition to our advisory committee.

Mary Ann Weakley will continue to share educational opportunities through our monthly newsletter and other information, and Karen Aldridge will still manage educational opportunities through creative writing and critique.

Education has become a key area for our group. LWC members have always learned retrospectively through critiques. But over the past couple of years, education has evolved into a more proactive and direct approach through creative writing lessons and prompts and now into entire education-focused meetings with our 5th Thursday sessions. Our attendance at our last 5th Thursday session hit an all-time high at twenty-two present. So I know you all are hungry to continuously absorb all there is to know about writing.

Please welcome Cece into her new role the next time you see her.
