"This book seeks to reinvigorate the teaching of writing by harkening back to the original principles of the writing workshop, offering teachers a meaningful way to teach children how to write with enthusiasm and expertise. The author argues that we must focus again on genuine curiosity, individual choice, big blocks of time, quality conversations, and powerful children's literature"--

Research is writing, but most PhD programs don't teach students how to produce the writing needed to get a PhD, publish research, or get funding. This friendly and practical guide by a cognitive sciences professor helps early-career researchers form writing groups to help them write more, write better, and be happier in the academic environment.
|Author||: Josip Novakovich|
|Editor||: Story Press|
In a clear and lively style, with rich literary references from classic and contemporary fiction, Novakovich teaches you how to: uncover ideas worth writing about; evoke a vivid sense of place and time; invent believable characters for your fiction; support your story with strong organization and structure; tell your story from the best viewpoint; direct your dramatic action; open and close with power and grace; choose expressive details; write with a commanding narrative voice; and transform your first draft into finished, polished fiction. At the end of each chapter, a dozen or more unique writing exercises (each with a clear "objective statement" to focus your efforts) will help you put what you learn into action, while exploring new ideas, approaches and genres. After you complete each exercise, "check" questions will help you review what you've done - so that you may revise or rewrite. Encouraging real improvement over negative self-criticism, Novakovich helps you gain a more productive sense of where you can write one more line that will add life to what you already have down - or where you can delete a line that may obscure your readers' view. He helps you develop day-to-day self-discipline. And perhaps most important, he respects and encourages your development of personal style. "I will give you a lot of advice", he says, "but you need not take it". As a writer, Novakovich knows that the strongest fiction emerges from your own choices and directions. Fiction Writer's Workshop gives you clear, firsthand understanding of the elements of fiction . . . so you can make more informed choices and your fiction more successful.

This book is a practical, highly readable guide to teaching writing across a broad range of ages and grade levels (K-8). Each stage of the writing process is covered in detail, from setting a purpose for writing to drafting, revising, editing, and producing a "finished" product. The goal is to provide a comprehensive overview of writing development and best practices in teaching, richly illustrated with examples of student work. Teachers learn strategies and techniques to help students work independently and in groups to develop meaningful projects; master needed skills through engaging mini-lessons; produce various forms of fiction and nonfiction writing; and use literature as a source of inspiration and modeling. Special features include "Teacher's Tips" and quick-reference lists that reinforce key points and aid in instructional planning. An invaluable Appendix provides booklists for mini-lessons on a variety of thematic, stylistic, and grammatical topics.

The Writing Workshop Note Book is devoted to making, remaking, and remarking on writing. Animated by a concern about how we relate to our own and others' writing and by a desire to have a felicitous effect on the reader's experience with writing and critiquing? and supported by his experience from decades of leading writing workshops? Ziegler has the following goals for this book;1) It will be useful if you are taking (or thinking of taking) a writing workshop.2) It will benefit workshop teachers.3) It will be a helpful companion to a solitary writer, who can be thought of as a ''workshop of one.''4) It will be pleasant to read! While this book does focus on the workshop experience, it is impossible to truly explore the workshop without dealing with the heart that sustains the workshop's brain; the act of creation. Thus, Part One is concerned with the work that leads to the drafts on the workshop table, and Part Two emphasizes what happens around the table while these drafts are critiqued. The two Parts are not discrete; the issues in Part One often occupy workshop discussion. Teachers of writing do not open up cans of lectures; pedagogy in workshops gets doled out in brief exegeses, organized opportunistically as the work comes across the table. Ziegler replicates this process by arranging the material into notes, which the reader can absorb sequentially or alight on as he flips through the pages.

The Antiracist Writing Workshop is a call to create healthy, sustainable, and empowering artistic communities for a new millennium of writers. Inspired by June Jordan 's 1995 Poetry for the People, here is a blueprint for a 21st-century workshop model that protects and platforms writers of color. Instead of earmarking dusty anthologies, imagine workshop participants Skyping with contemporary writers of difference. Instead of tolerating bigoted criticism, imagine workshop participants moderating their own feedback sessions. Instead of yielding to the red-penned judgement of instructors, imagine workshop participants citing their own text in dialogue. The Antiracist Writing Workshop is essential reading for anyone looking to revolutionize the old workshop model into an enlightened, democratic counterculture.

The dream of writing a book for prosperity is one of the so-called purposes in life. They all write it down together with “plant a tree” and “have a child” and most will marry, breed offspring and participate in a reforestation campaign but... what about the book? We walk through a bookstore or visit an exhibition of books from around the world and we are surprised that someone is able to write stories, collect biographies of illustrious men... And even in movies, “diaries” seem to be the ideal of any young person captured on screen. Could it be that it is impossible to write this book in order to leave a mark of our passage in this world? Let me tell you yes. Yes it is possible.
