Darcy Gagnon

Darcy Gagnon

I am a graduate of Frostburg State University, where I studied creative-writing. My specialties are poetry and creative nonfiction, though I enjoy reading and studying all manners of writing. Besides books, I’m extremely fond of music and cinema. Guilty pleasures include surrealist art, cats, and Bruce Lee flicks. I believe that good writing is a communal effort, and I look forward to discussing, debating, and humoring the ideas in which great stories begin.

K-12 Writing Workshop


K-12 Writing WorkshopThe purpose of these workshops is to get students excited about writing; we would like to provide an atmosphere that cultivates curiosity and creativity. We aim to provide activities that stimulate the senses. Each workshop will combine craft lessons on poetry or fiction with writing exercises. The workshops are designed to provide young, beginning writers with the skills and tools they need to mature as writers while also providing them with a body of creative work at the end of the workshop.
