The Annual Pennsylvania Writing Institute

One of the reflective practice pages I'll be placing in participants' binders.

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time preparing for the morning session I’m leading at the Annual Pennsylvania Writing Institute in early August.  I am honored to have the opportunity to be speaking about the practical matters of daily life in the writing workshop on Tuesday, August 2nd.  Other speakers at this year’s institute include Anne Schober, Troy Hicks, Ann Marie Corgill and Linda Oatman High.

The Institute takes place at Millersville University, which is located near Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  (Lancaster is about an hour west of the Philadelphia Airport.)  Here’s some more information about the structure of the Writing Institute:

The Annual Pennsylvania Writing Institute is an invigorating week of professional learning and sharing. Participants will spend the mornings during the week with nationally-renowned speakers , and will have an opportunity to interact with them after lunch in a Question-Answer format. Following each day’s Question-Answer session, participants will break into grade-alike sessions to develop themselves as writers, and as teachers of writing, under the direction of talented teacher-facilitators. Respect for the work that teachers do, and for the knowledge that they bring, is paramount in this Institute.  (Retrieved from on 6/9/11.)

If you’re looking for a professional development opportunity that will provide you with graduate credit this summer, then consider this Institute.  For more information, click here.
