“As a Department Chair and teacher for over 15 years, I am always looking for new ways to teach and encourage authentic writing. Today's world demands that students be articulate, sensitive, and creative citizens—they must think critically and express themselves in powerful ways. The teacher workshop by Liz Matthews was both inspiring and enjoyable for our group of teachers, aiming to foster a student's voice and creativity. She shared numerous resources and exercises to use with students of all grade levels. We even had time to practice some creative writing of our own! The Westport Writers Workshop is a terrific resource for teachers and educational coaches to find engaging ways to help students become empowered writers."
