Fun writing prompts, inspiring literary models, and plenty of time to write and share are incorporated into this workshop designed for K-12 teachers who want to make more time and space for writing. Participants will generate fresh writing and explore ways to create and maintain a writing practice through the school year. During a Writers in the Schools (WITS) residency, students work with a published professional writer to learn new strategies to start, sustain, and revise their writing projects. They grow in fluency, confidence, enthusiasm and creativity. This workshop offers insights into the key elements of a WITS residency and provides educators with an opportunity to put their words on the page. Participants earn two PDUs at the completion of this workshop.
