This morning, I’m thrilled to announce that my new book, Hacking the Writing Workshop: Redesign with Making in Mind, is now available. I’ve also asked my publisher, Mark Barnes, to offer it at a discount to those who subscribe to my blog and participate in my Facebook group.

We aren’t announcing this widely, but until the eBook is complete and we’re ready for our official launch, the book is only $9.95 on Amazon. It will jump up to $22.95 and remain there soon, though. This is a good time to pick up your own copy and order multiple copies for staff and book club reading.

Thanks for following what I do in this space and for inspiring me to want to keep sharing my work with teachers. I look forward to your feedback!

    I follow you on Instagram, and am currently reading, Hacking School Discipline. That’s where I saw your book, Hacking the Writing Workshop! I have been an educator for 16 years in the upper elementary classroom, and served as a Literacy Coach one year, only to find that the classroom is my home! I’m so excited to buy your book and transform my writing workshop! Thank you!

    • Oh my goodness! Welcome, Shannon! Hey, be sure to come back once you start reading. I’d love to share other ideas and stories and resources with you. I’m often doing this work in schools on the ground, and I tend to design new things for each group that I support. Always happy to share with readers, too.

    Hello! I adopted this text in my Teaching of Writing course! Do you know how I may get a Desk Copy?

    • Hi Wendy–I’m grateful for this! I do not have much to do with distribution, but you might contact my publisher, Mark Barnes at x10 Publications/Hack Learning. I’m sorry I can’t help more.
