Visiting Writers Series
The Visiting Writers Series at Trinity Preparatory School brings nationally acclaimed authors and poets to the campus to work with students and teach them about creative writing in a variety of genres. Visiting writers conduct workshops, read from their work, and chat with Trinity students about the writing life.

Jasmin Pittman Morrell is a co-editor of The Porch Magazine and an MFA graduate of Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia. You can find her long-form essays featured in The Bitter Southerner and Meeting At The Table: African-American Women Write On Race, Culture and Community (DownSouth Press, 2020). When she’s not surrounded by words, she’s probably getting lost in the woods around her home in western North Carolina.
