Circle of Writers


 
Circle of Writers

We will celebrate our achievements for the past ten years by publishing a new book. We already have a working title! A Decade in the Company of Writers will be an anthology of yesterday and today, selected works from your Summer Institute’s edition of In the Company of Writers and your contributions of new and recent creative, scholarly, and professional work, inquiry and reflective writings: To celebrate ourselves, our profession, our writing, the Meadow Brook Writing Project, and the National Writing Project.

Who are we?… We are you! The Meadow Brook Writing Project Circle of Writers continues the exchange of ideas and the interactions we shared during our Summer Institutes. A few times a year, we gather informally to continue our personal and professional writing in the collaborative spirit of teachers writing with teachers, and friends writing with friends.

What we do have fun, socialize, and write!  We have no annual dues and meetings are free. Usually, someone leads us in a writing prompt or activity that we can enjoy for ourselves or use in our classrooms. Some of us bring our personal or professional pieces of works in progress. Sometimes we attend or sponsor special events, embark upon nature or cultural excursions, or invite guest speakers from inside and outside of the Meadow Brook Writing Project. Sometimes we invite family, friends, and colleagues.
