Teachers Write is back!
Teachers Write is the brainchild of Kate Messner (author of such chapter books, MGs, and YAs like the Marty McGuire series and Capture the Flag). She’s running it with Jo Knowles, Gae Polisner, and Jen Vincent (one of the gurus behind Teach Mentor Texts).
You can find out more and sign up at Kate’s Teachers Write informational post.
Basically, the deal is that teachers, librarians, and others read minilessons on the craft of writing by various authors, get inspired by prompts, and commit to writing, at least a little bit, and maybe even out of their comfort zone.
It starts on Monday. I’m going to try to actually do it, instead of just lurking! Hope to see you there.
