Local writer and editor visits LMS ELA classes

Gus and Henrik
Gus and Henrik Axelson
Lansing Middle School recently had a special guest stop by the sixth grade classroom. Gus Axelson spent the day with the sixth-grade ELA class, discussing his career as a writer and editor in chief of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Living Bird magazine and freelance travel writer for The New York Times. Mr. Axelson discussed the process involved in creating compelling and creative non-fiction writing. The ELA classes will use this as inspiration for memoir writing the classes are currently working on.

Thank you for visiting, Mr. Axelson!
