The Writing Round-Up {6.11.17}


Summer is the perfect time to work on your own writing. Whether you are just starting out or have a well developed habit that you would like to move forward, this week's Writing Round-Up will give you the inspiration you need!

Paying Attention to Life: Keeping a writer's notebook is one of the most important acts a writer can do to grow their writing life. Have you been stalling on starting one and need more convincing to keep a writer's notebook? Read how Linda Rief shares the many essential ways she has come to rely on her notebook to record the happenings of life and practice her craft of writing in this post.

Let's Get Notebooking!: Looking for some ideas to start or grow your own writer's notebook? Amy Ludwig Vanderwater has got you covered with her extensive list of notebooking ideas. These prompts are perfect to inspire all writers -- students and teachers alike!

Summer Writing Opportunities for Teachers: Looking for a way to connect with other teachers who are working on their writing this summer? Check out these resources:

Celebrate This Week: Every Saturday, Ruth Ayres hosts a Celebrate This Week link up where you can share a celebration from your week and connect with other teacher writers. Good feelings and celebration abound!

Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life: Every Tuesday, link up your 'slice of life' from your blog to the TWT's Slice of Life page. (A 'slice of life' is a small moment writing piece.) Read and comment on other teacher's slices and before you know it, you will have a network of writing support!

Teachers Write 2017: Attend virtual summer writing camp with author Kate Messner and friends as they host Teachers Write 2017 from July 10 through August 4. Daily writing inspiration & tips abound, plus the chance to connect with other teacher writers!

Teachers Who Write: Angela Stockman is hosting Teachers Who Write, a professional writing support group. More information and a sign up can be found here.
