Let’s get ready to launch a year of making and writing.

We make inside of writing workshops to elevate the process.

And we transform our writing workshops into makerspaces for writers in order to elevate the traditional structures we’ve come value, too.

Making writing isn’t about ditching what works.

It’s about rethinking what writing is, in order to create future-ready workshops that honor best practices while making room for next practices.

I’m Angela Stockman, and I’ve helped hundreds of teachers do this work on the ground over the last ten years. I can help you, too. That’s what this course will do. 

In this course, participants will:

  • Explore best practices for launching a writing workshop at the primary, intermediate, or middle school level.
  • Consider next practices that will shift the workshop from a teacher to a student-driven model.
  • Examine specific strategies, mini-lessons, and approaches that make for a meaningful make writing launch.

Once you’re registered, all of the course content will appear at the very bottom of this page. Return to it anytime. Access it from the home page, too.

Here’s what you’ll get.
