Fertile Ground

Not only has the NWP taught me to be a writer, but the leaders and programs NWP has exposed me to have taught me to become a teacher who writes.  There are so many parts involved in teaching writing.  There is so much research and so many experts.  NWP has helped me organize my experiences and education by leading me to ask questions like: What makes this a good piece of writing?  What do other authors do to make their writing great?  What steps go into great writing?  How can I convey great writing to my students?  The NWP has provided me with a safe place to plant seeds of ideas and watch them grow.
