A Winter Recess

It’s time for our annual winter recess. (And it’s probably time for yours too!) But don’t worry, even though there won’t be any new posts from now until Tuesday, January 1st there is plenty to read from our archives as well as so much to look forward to in 2019 when we return!


On January 1st, Betsy will kick off our One Little Word series for 2019 a bit differently than we’ve done it in the past. This year, each co-author will post about his/her One Little Word on their personal blog. Betsy will share links in a round-up post here on Two Writing Teachers.

We hope you will be thinking about your OLW and maybe find inspiration from our previous OLW choices.

Blog Series

Mark your 2019 calendar for our January/February Blog Series titled, Teaching Writing with a Social Justice Lens, which will begin on Sunday, January 27th, 2019. Also, mark your calendar for our next Twitter Chat, which will feature an author and two teachers who are doing important social justice work with young writers. More information:


If you are looking for posts from any previous blog series check out the list below!

Tuesday SOL

Check in on Tuesdays as Betsy will continue to host our weekly call for Slice of Life Stories through the month.  If you have been thinking about joining, winter break is a great time to share your first Slice of Life Story.  Simply write your story on your personal blog, share the URL on Tuesday in our comment section, and leave at least three comments for other bloggers.

March Slice of Life Story Challenge

2019 marks the 12th anniversary of the Slice of Life Story Challenge and we look forward to sharing more about this exciting time here on Two Writing Teachers when we commit to writing daily for thirty-one days!

Social Media

 Rest, relax, and enjoy time with your loved ones!

While you do, collect story ideas for future Slice of Life ideas.

Happy Holidays! Happy Winter! Happy New Year!
