Dianne Smith

We are seeking contributions for a collection of essays (to present for
publication in 2007) which will address the status of the workshop model in
creative writing and composition. The workshop model has been around for a
long time. Has it become static or is it alive and well in our writing
classes? What's working and what's not? What is its aim, purpose, and
future? How do teachers keep workshops fresh and productive? What innovative
techniques are used in conjunction with the workshop model?

 

Contributors should contact Dianne Donnelly-Smith at djsmith_at_mail.usf.edu.

 

Deadline for submission is 11/08/06.
