Sensory writing and how to use descriptive words were the topics of discussion at the writer’s workshops held at Accompsett Middle School on Jan. 15 by author Todd Strasser. The visit was part of the school’s Parent-Teacher Association’s cultural arts program.

Sixth-grade students met in the auditorium for a presentation by Mr. Strasser, who discussed his experiences as a children’s author. Following the group assembly, Mr. Strasser worked with the students in writer’s workshops in the library. During the workshops, the students learned how to use words in their writing to “show rather than tell” the story.
