Creative Writing Workshops
Immensely popular writing workshops are held each autumn in dozens of
schools through New York City. These high energy, engaging workshops
not only help get kids involved in the program, they also inspire kids
to write creatively all the time. Workshops are hosted by teaching artists
who share their ideas and philosophies with students and perform or
recite from their own works. Workshops take place from October thru
Write Here, Write Now Lesson Plans
Created by Richard Hoehler and Trish Heimers, and edited by Evelyn Polesny,
these six lesson plans are based on our engaging and high energy workshops.
Designed for class periods of forty to fifty minutes, you'll find lessons
for specific genres as well as those designed to sput your students
forward toward writing in any genre. These creative writing lessons
can be used in your Language Arts classes to start any creative writing
project, or as a way to introduce your seniors to the Random House,
Inc. Creative Writing Competition.
