Derek Miller is a teacher at Royal Oak High School, Susan Wilson is an instructional coach at Bloomfield Hills Schools, and Troy Hicks is a professor of English and education at Central Michigan University. All three are proud to be affiliated with National Writing Project sites in Michigan, Oakland WP at UM-Flint and Chippewa River WP at CMU.
