Celebrating Writers: From Possibilities Through Publication
88 pages • 6 x 9
Writing begins before students even pick up a pencil, but there are many reasons to stop and rejoice between idea and finished product. This innovative book discusses dozens of ways to respond, reflect, and rejoice along the challenging writing journey, helping students to persevere when faced with roadblocks. This type of celebration helps students see writing as a process, not simply an end-game of a successful finished product. From travelling notebooks to lunch-table writing, from author interviews with a writing partner to silent reflection, from swapping stories around a "campfire" to tweeting favourite lines, Celebrating Writers shares a wealth of fun and effective ideas to commemorate the writing process.
