Join fellow writers, teachers, leaders, and learners for the inaugural Midwest Writing Conference, August 3-5, 2018, on the UW-Madison campus. The conference, hosted by the Greater Madison Writing Project, features keynote speaker Troy Hicks, more than 50 presentations led by National Writing Project educators from across the country, and writing marathon options that will explore the Lake Mendota shoreline, State Street, the Capital, and other Madison attractions.
Specific conference strands will focus on issues related to teaching writing for practicing educators; site work, including leadership development; the College, Career, and Community Writers Program (C3WP); and digital literacy.
A full-day pre-conference with Troy Hicks, professor of English and education at Central Michigan University will focus on a variety of digital writing activities for teachers of grades 3-12. This day will be split into two workshops, beginning with writing spaces where students must connect content knowledge, literacy skills, and critical thinking among disciplines; and ending with the integration of C3WP, the writing process, and practices with Writable.
