Local student participates in summer writing workshop

   Joshua Barbour, son of James and Jennie Barbour of Duvall, participated in the fourth annual Jonathan R. Reynolds Young Writers Workshop June 14 to 21 at Denison University in Granville, Ohio.
  
   The Young Writers Workshop was directed by guest experts and faculty in Denison's creative writing program.
  
   Various activities for workshop participants included "One-on-One-Conferences" with professors, as well as the opportunity to read works by faculty members and visiting writers and discuss them with the authors.
  
   In a session titled "Expository and College Writing," students' skills were improved for high school compositions and college application essays.
