The Mission: To help creative writing teachers sharpen their skills and expand their horizons.

While all teachers are welcome to hang out here, this site should be particularly appealing to that special breed of teacher -- the creative writing teacher. This person might teach a course that is actually called "Creative Writing." Or, this person might teach a regular old English course but load it up with creative writing options. This person might not teach English at all but sponsor the Creative Writing Club. This person might simply get the mail for the “Creative Writing Person." Or this person might be a creative writing wannabe anxious to use the stuff but not sure how to do it.

If you are one of these people, you're going to want to stick around. You will find books that can be useful to a writing teacher. You will learn fresh approaches. You will discover valuable resources. You can submit samples of your students' writing. You can share true stories about teaching. You can share fictional stories or poetry about teaching. You can respond to what has been submitted by other teachers. You can respond to teachers who have responded to you.

Right now the place has a lot of my work. As time goes by, your work will take over, and that's the way it should be.
