Educators' Symposium: Creative Writing Intensive for Teachers of Writing

This three-day summer workshop focusing on the art and craft of story is designed to offer secondary-level English teachers an opportunity to exercise their own writing muses as well as to gain tools to enrich their teaching. Over the course of three morning workshops, participants will engage in writing exercises in story structure, character and plot development, point of view, descriptive writing, dialogue, style, and the creation of “significance.”


KATIE MCDOUGALL, co-founder of The Porch Writers’ Collective, will merge her experience as a fiction writer and a classroom teacher. Prior to The Porch, Katie spent fifteen years as an English teacher in both public and private high schools in Colorado, Nashville, and The Bahamas.
