I’ve been drooling at the thought of a this writer’s conference in San Miguel de Allende with Joan Dideon and Sandra Cisneros. I love both writers and really love San Miguel de Allende – it’s a beautiful little town. I saw my first Mexican parade there and was almost killed by torpedoed candy. Aaaah. Good times.
The conference got me thinking. What if schools had writing conferences for their young writers? Days with opportunities to select from developmentally appropriate sessions that interested each child?
I imagine the school could invite:
- Visiting authors
- Master teachers
- Freelance writers
Workshops and events could include:
- Craft workshops
- Journaling &/or art journaling
- Workshoping sessions
What do you think? Wouldn’t this be amazing?
