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.
