EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — New York Times best-selling author and Massachusetts native Casey Sherman made a guest appearance at the Gordon Middle School Tuesday.
Sherman provided students with writing tips and taught them techniques for writing a novel.
His visit is all part of National Novel Writing month.
36 students at the school will take part in a writing challenge next month where they will attempt to write a 50,000 word novel.
“Hopefully there are a few of these kids at the Gordon school that will propel themselves to writing mini novels here for class and then writing major novels one day when they’re a little older,” said Sherman.
Sherman is the best-selling author of ten books including the Ice Bucket Challenge, The Finest Hours, and Boston Strong.
