Bethel's young writers celebrate Alaska Book Week

During Alaska Book Week, the Bethel chapter of WYAK (Write Young Alaska) will be busy with a variety of events. Peter Twitchell, longtime Delta Discovery columnist, will be visiting them to answer their burning questions about the writing process, maintaining deadlines, and coming up with fresh ideas. Their goal is to come away with ideas for editorials of their own to submit to the newspaper. And Alaska author Don Rearden (The Raven's Gift) will Skype with the WYAK group to discuss how to use setting to create mood - they will  use that session to fine-tune submissions to the WYAK "Ghosts and Legends" writing contest. And last but not least, a special display of Alaska books is planned at Bethel Regional High School.
