In addition to facilitating professional development sessions for teachers, I’m also the founder of the WNY Young Writer’s Studio. Here, K-12 writers and teachers of writing meet throughout the year to learn, make, write, share and support one another by improving the quality of feedback they provide. This year, we’re celebrating our seventh birthday.
Kids attend Studio to explore great writing, discover new forms, and tinker with craft. Teachers join Studio to participate in lesson studies and engage in their own action research. My vision for this organization was inspired by my deepening understanding of what high quality writing instruction and professional development could look like. Teachers and kids learn and work and play beside one another at Studio, and everyone, regardless of age or title, is a teacher.
The WNY Young Writer’s Studio celebrates its birthday in April each year, and each year, we celebrate by running a special discount for our young writers for one weekend only.
Beginning Saturday, April 18th, new and returning K-12 kids may register for any upcoming Studio fellowship program or session at half price.
This discount is good only until midnight on April 19th, so if you’re interested in taking advantage of this offer, please be sure to complete our online registration and payment process by this time.
If you are a teacher who is interested in joining our fellowship programs, know you may do so at no cost. Studio requires a greater commitment than event-based workshops do. You’ll learn a great deal, connect with some incredible colleagues, and disseminate the findings from your work to others in the field. Your learning will influence our learning in significant ways. We recognize this contribution by consistently crediting teachers for all that they do and never asking any of them to pay for their participation in any of our programs.
