    Kristen has something to teach all of us–inexperienced and experienced writers alike–about how to create a writing life or enrich our writing lives in powerful ways. And her book can help all of us become better writing teachers.
    –Carl Anderson, author of Assessing Writers
    Reading Living and Teaching the Writing Workshop felt like I had this funny, passionate, insightful teacher sitting next to me and coaching me through all this. The wonderfully conversational tone is perfect for that teacher who really wants to do "this writing stuff" herself but is a little nervous about it all.
    –Katie Wood Ray, author of About the Authors

In Living and Teaching the Writing Workshop, Kristen Painter helps you develop the writing teacher in you by uncovering the writer in you. After all, the more you know about writing, the better able you are to show students how it works, what it's like, and the amazing sense of possibility it can bring you.

 

Inspirational and reflective, yet roll-up-your-sleeves workable, Living and Teaching the Writing Workshop also contains minilessons that directly apply what you learn in your own writing to your students' learning by modeling the writing process for them. Slim, practical, and complete with writing invitations for you and your students, Living and Teaching the Writing Workshop will help you link theory and practice, find commonalities between your professional and personal selves, and connect you to both your students and your curriculum.
