The Writing Round-Up {2.08.20}

Welcome to the February 8, 2020 edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up. Thank you for stopping by!

Every week, I gather tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes and put them right here in the Writing Round-Up.

Be sure that you have joined my email list so you never miss an update!

Now, onto this week's tips...

Contest Alert -- Picture Books:

If you have a picture book manuscript and are looking for a place to submit it, check out the Bedtime Picture Book contest from the Institute of Children's Literature. Deadline is 3/31/20.

One Little Thing:

Stephanie Affinito shares how she uses her notebook as a tool for celebration in her post, "One Little Thing" on the Sharing Our Notebooks blog. Students may benefit from keeping a One Little Thing notebook too!

Memory Inspired Writing:

How can writers take a memory and spin in into a fictional story? See how Christine Carlson Asselin did in in her post "How Memory Can Inspire Fiction" from Writers' Rumpus.
