Former Cincinnati Post managing editor and current Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement at Northern Kentucky University executive director Mark Neikirk addressed a group of outstanding high school writers yesterday in the Library’s Reading Room, in order to provide the students with first hand evidence that it is possible for to make a living writing.

Mark’s tips for young writers in the era of the Tweet and the text message?  Lead with the Five Ws.  Be concise.

Good advice.
