Welcome to the final edition of the Writing Round-Up.
For the past four years, I have enjoyed using the Writing Round-Up as a space to share tips for teacher-writers and writing teachers. But the time has come to retire the Writing Round-Up to make space and time for new adventures.
If you'd like to continue to receive tips to help you grow as a teacher-writer, make sure that you are a member of our Teach Write Community on Facebook and join us in the Time to Write Workshop, our wonderful writing community for teachers who write.
Without further delay, enjoy this week's tips!
Need a way to clear your mind, rev up your creativity, and silence your inner judge before you write? How about your students? Anytime Pages are the answer! Learn more about them here.
February will be here before you know it! Join us for a workshop to help grow your writing habit inside the Teach Write Academy. View February's workshops here.
Are you a grammar nerd like I am? Read Writer's Digest's "75 Grammar Rules for Writers" to check out some common faux pas in writing. (It would be interesting to share these with students too!)
Are you looking for some great writing podcasts? Check out “23 Top Writing Podcasts That Help You Improve Your Craft.” The podcasts range from writing fiction to living as a writer to publishing strategies. No matter where you are as a writer, you are sure to find one that fits your needs.
If you are considering writing a picture book, then this is a must-read! Josh Funk, the author of picture books including, Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast, has 12 lessons in “Josh Funk’s Guide to Writing Picture Books” that share what he has learned during his writing career.
