Testimonials

As a new teacher and writer, Teach Write has encouraged and  inspired me. The Wednesday writing group has given me a set time and space to write, working on any project for school or for personal projects. My first session I was stuck and couldn’t get through writing for an hour. By session 4, I was working on simultaneous projects and the time was flying. I feel support from the Teach Write community and am grateful to have jumpstarted my writing career.

Prior to my participation in the this workshop, I considered myself a teacher who dreamt of being a writer...someday.  I held this dream for most of my life, yet for various reasons, I denied myself permission to realize my dream.  My yearning to write, though, continued to grow, so I decided to do something about it. Since joining the weekly Wednesday night Time to Write! workshop, I have gained confidence in myself as a writer. I AM a writer! It is no longer "I want to be a writer someday." I appreciate the encouragement I have received from everyone in the group.

FAQ

Do I have to already be a writer to take this course?

No. You only need a desire to write and some writing that you'd like to work on. Everyone -- writers of ALL -- levels are welcome!

Do I have to already be a writer to take this course?

We will begin each session with a short catch-up conversation. Over time, we will all learn about each other's writing goals and want to know how things are going.

Next, we will review the goals we had set from the previous week and share whether we met that goal or not. (A simple 'yes' or 'no' answer is all that's necessary.)

Then we will set some goals for the session's writing time and get writing. We will write for one hour. During this time, participants have found it motivating to know that others are writing with them. While we can't be in the same room together, we can all write together through the virtual power of Zoom.

After an hour, we will then share how our writing went for the past hour. Any questions you have can be shared with the group.

Finally, we will each share a goal we have for our writing that we plan to accomplish by our next meeting time. 

What if I have to miss a week?

Life happens. School obligations happen. Just drop me an email so I know not to look for you. We will miss you if you have to skip a week, but we will catch up with you the next week.

Do you tell me what to write about?

Nope. Everyone is working on their own thing. (We're happy to make suggestions if you need one though!)
