The 2nd Annual
Advanced Institute For Teachers Who Write
Summer 2019 Reflections
It was an exciting summer for RIWP as we embarked on a new venture to provide writing opportunities for teacher/writers in RI. The first annual Advanced Institute, led by co-facilitators Anne Barnhart and Jason Ryan, was a great success. Nine participants wrote, reflected, shared, and published. Five days of journaling and sharing our craft with kindred spirits certainly helped to revitalize and develop our identities as teacher/writers and provided pathways for bringing our writing out of our notebooks and into the world!
A chance to write and connect!
What: The RIWP Advanced Institute is a week-long intensive workshop for teacher consultants and other RIWP affiliates who want to hone their personal and professional writing for the purpose of publication. It will be a focused, productive workspace for each participant to work on their own writing but also to collaborate with others for a true workshop experience.
All participants will have the opportunity to publish digitally and in hardcopy form through RIWP and will be invited to be part of the RIWP blog.
Who: Teachers who write. While teacher consultants who have completed the Summer Institute are the most likely candidates, anyone connected with the RIWP who wants to hone their personal and professional writing for the purpose of publication is welcome!
When: July 20nd-July 24th from 9AM-2PM
Where: Rhode Island College
Facilitators: Anne Barnhart (Westerly High School) and Jason Ryan (North Providence High School)
