PAUL SMITHS - The Adirondack Center for Writing (ACW) is collaborating with two other New York State literary organizations, Teachers & Writers and Just Buffalo, to offer professional training development for writers working in schools.
Teaching artists, in this case writers, go into classrooms and collaborate with teachers to work with students to develop their creative writing skills. ACW has been involved with a state-wide initiative that is working to bring more writers into New York State schools.
ACW is offering a professional development session and opportunity to meet with other teaching writers in New York City this February. If you are a writer who has been working in schools for a year or two and would like to attend this convention, please email a resume and letter of interest to ACW. All travel expenses will be covered.
