For Teachers

Creative Writing Teachers!
It has been so nice to hear from you, to meet my tribe from all over that nation! Feel free to use any materials on this site, permission granted. I apologize in advance if I am not always able to answer your emails, as I get overwhelmed at times!

I have started to uploaded some documents below you might find useful.  I'm in process . . .  

I'm also in the process of creating a list of books for you I have found most useful:

RECOMMENDED BOOKS:

Great books with collections of writing prompts and exercises by writers and teachers of creative writing:

Great book of prompts:

My favorite book on craft, with models and some exercises, directed toward college instructors, but appropriate for high school teachers:
Imaginative Writing: The Elements of Craft, by Janet Burroway (divided into sections Image, Voice, Character, Setting, Story, Development and Revision, and Genres)

For remembering what it's like to be a teenager:
Watch the documentary Mortified Nation, where adults read excerpts from their high school diary on stage.
