Local Writer/Teacher Presents Workshop at 2017 Conference

Among workshops planned for the 2017 RMOWP conference in Sierra Vista, Arizona in April, teacher, writer, and editor Beth Orozco present a program titled “Bringing the Stories of the Natural World to Life.”

She is also a contributing editor for Mirage, Cochise College’s literary and arts magazine.

In addition, Ms. Orozco is the organizing chair of the Cochise Creative Writing Celebration, and invites members of RMOWP to participate in the event, planned March 30 to April 1.
