By Allison Horseman, Somerset Community College

Somerset, KY (September 3, 2014) - When Nancy Phelps and Wanda Fries met in a Somerset Community College (SCC) creative writing course several years ago, they did not know that they would one day be not only friends, but would collaborate on projects as well. Fries was the course's teacher, and like many of the college's students, Phelps was attending the course for enrichment, not fulfilling a requirement for a degree. Having returned to the family home in Jamestown, Phelps was a graphic designer at the Center for Rural Development in Somerset, Kentucky at the time, and when a business writing course was unavailable, decided to take creative writing because it sounded like fun.
