If you are a teacher or librarian, there are a couple great summer writing workshop opportunities:
Camp takes place at www.katemessner.com/blog (Post Category: TeachersWrite) New posts will be shared each weekday morning, and you can check in whenever it’s convenient.
Dates: June 4th– August 10th
Each week includes mini-lessons on the craft of writing, quick writes, Q & A with authors, sharing of your work with feedback. Author Gae Polisner will also be hosting a Feedback Friday on her blog, so feel free to stop by there as well to share your work & offer feedback to others.
Teacher-writer Jen Vincent is having a weekend get-together on her blog, Teach Mentor Texts. Jen will be hosting an online writing group there. Each Sunday, she’ll be sharing reflections on her journey as a teacher who writes and encouraging others along the way. Think of it as a support group for writers, and head over there on Sundays to talk about goals, progress, struggles, and more.
Beyond these daily posts, you can also expect the occasional surprise along the way – guest posts and some book giveaways for your classroom libraries, because teachers & librarians who write are worth celebrating.

And, if you enjoy writing for children and want to learn more, I offer a Writing the Picture Book and Writing the Children’s Short Story distance learning classes for educators through Seattle Pacific University. Both classes are 5 credits and you have a year to complete each course.
