President, Project Write, Inc.
Summer Instructor, Daily Registration
A former journalist and public relations manager, Rhonda Lancaster has taught English and creative writing at James Wood High School in Winchester, Va., for more than a decade now. She has worked on student publications since her first piece, a slasher-horror story, was published in her middle school creative arts publication. A certified Teacher Consultant for the National Writing Project, she teaches for the young writers’ workshops because she can’t imagine a better, more enjoyable way to spend her time than with enthusiastic writers. In other interests, she enjoys gardening, finding and fixing unique recipes, and hiking. She earned her MA in creative writing and literature from Fairleigh Dickinson University. She is a member WV Writers Inc., and a board member of the Shenandoah Valley Writing Project. Her flash memoir, “Shell Shocked,” was published in the Anthology of Appalachian Writers Volume VI, and her poem, “Losing Sight,” was published in the Anthology of Appalachian Writers Volume VII. She lives with her husband and three rescue dogs in Capon Bridge, W.Va.
