K-Stater to serve as officer for national writers organization

Submitted by Ron Wilson

A K-State faculty member will serve as an officer of a national organization of western writers.

Ron Wilson, director of K-State's Huck Boyd National Institute for Rural Development, has been elected secretary of the national chapter of Western Wordsmiths. Western Wordsmiths is an organization for writers of prose and poetry about the American West.

"The organization is for authors, cowboy poets, lyricists, or others with an interest in writing about western history and contemporary life," Wilson said.

Western Wordsmiths is affiliated with the International Western Music Association.

"I'm pleased to work with others in seeking to improve our craft," Wilson said.
