March 2018 Writing Retreat Information

 

NWP 2017 Annual Meeting and Writing Marathon in St. Louis! 

What better thing to do when a mass of writing project teachers converge on St. Louis? Host a writing marathon of course! In conjunction with the NWP Annual Meeting, our very own Tracy Brosch & Sioux Roslawski will be hosting two different writing marathons to help visitors experience St. Louis. See descriptions below and make plans to attend. More information about where to meet will be forthcoming (no charge if you meet onsite rather than riding bus). Two Different Views of St. Louis: You Choose Your Writing Marathon

What is St. Louis famous for? The Arch. The Cardinals. And Ferguson.

  • If you’d like to stay in the city, you can choose a writing marathon which includes some of the city sights (free). Participants will leave on a walking tour from the convention center, stopping at various spots to write and then share. You’ll get a chance to soak in some of the architecture and historic monuments.
  • Or, you can choose to go by bus ($10) to get a view of the tiny suburban town of Ferguson—a view the news channels never showed the public. You’ll get to walk along the route where all the protests were as you stop at picturesque and quite normal-looking spots to write and share.

The Teachers as Writers group believes that teachers--whether they're a math, art, science, social studies or language arts teacher--are better writing teachers when they themselves think of themselves as writers. And how do we feel more confident and live a more writerly life? By writing on a regular basis, of course.

We have monthly critique sessions--a time when you can bring a piece of writing and get some suggestions on ways to revise it. It's a low-pressure way to develop some writerly habits.  Anyone is welcome to join.  The group begins to gather around 4 and lasts around 2 hours.  Meetings are at St. Louis Bread Company, 1909 S. Brentwood. (Dates are on our home page) Bring a few hard copies of what you are working on writing-wise, a place to take notes, and your desire to grow as a writer!

Other opportunities to come together as writers, includes reading our TC writing on our blog, 9Lives.

Read more about our most recent Writing Retreat in November of 2016!  All left rejuvenated and grateful for their time to write with the support of a community of writers.
