Teachers as Writers: Gathering Together

January 11, 2020

For many years, WMWP offered an informal workshop on Saturdays once a month for educators who write - or want to write - in any genre on any subject. The monthly gatherings offered an opportunity to carve out some dedicated time for writing, to give and receive feedback, and above all to be in a community of writers.

The tradition is back! We are pleased to announce that a new Teachers as Writers workshop will commence on Saturday, February 1, at 9:30 a.m. at UMass. (Please see the attached flyer for more details.) At the initial meeting, we will discuss the schedule and other aspects of the program.

Please join us in fulfilling the National Writing Project motto: "write - learn - lead." Also share this opportunity with your colleagues. We do ask that you let us know you are coming so we can plan accordingly.

See you on the 1st!
