This summer I'm soooooooooo excited to write! Since 2011, I've been writing novels and picture books. Last summer I had tons of plans for my writing and then things didn't go as I had imagined. But that's okay! I've learned so much in the last year about writing and about myself. I have lots of new adventures coming up but I'm focusing as much as I can on now and on celebrating each moment.
This year I'm excited to truly write the novel I wanted to write last year and to bring it to life. It's been waiting for my patiently and I can't wait to bring it into reality during Teachers Write. Did you see Kate Messner's post about Teachers Write? Be sure to check it out and sign up!
As always, I'll be sharing my experience with Teachers Write on Sundays and this year I'll be hosting three mentor text meet ups. We'll chat about the mentor texts Kate shares and reflect on our writing for the week via a Zoom call. If you want to follow along with the mentor texts, you can see them all in this post from Kate.
Here are the dates for our Mentor Text Meet Ups:
Sunday, July 14th
Sunday, July 21st
Sunday, July 28th
5:00 pm PST / 6:00 pm MST / 7:00 pm CST / 8:00 pm EST
Some of my teacher-writer friends will be there to chat with me and I hope you join in too! I'll be sharing the links to join the Zoom calls in my weekly check in post on Sunday morning so be sure to check in here to get all the information.
Another summer of writing and learning will be here before we know it! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments or send me an email at jen (at) teachmentortexts (dot) com.
