Los Angeles Writing Project
Posted by Cal State LA on 6/19/07
Teachers: Do you have a little extra time on your hands this
summer? Would you like to use that time to work on some
writing of your own? And earn credit at the same time?
The Cal State LA Writing Project is offering a Summer
Creative Writing Intensive for Educators of all levels
(kindergarten through college). This is an opportunity to
participate in a writers’ workshop; write personal memoir,
fiction, or poetry; increase your ability to develop
effective creative writing curricula for your students; and
earn credit doing something you love (two units of credit
will be offered through Extended Education).
Here are the nuts and bolts:
• The course will run from July 3 - July 26 (4 weeks)
• We’ll meet twice a week: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4pm – 6:50 pm
• Final submissions are due online (no class meeting) July 26
In addition to writing and critiquing, we’ll read and
discuss Meredith Sue Willis’ Personal Fiction Writing: A
Guide to Writing from Real Life for Teachers, Students, and
Other Writers (available at www.twc.org). In the process,
we’ll also share stories from the teaching trenches and
develop strategies for teaching creative writing in
multicultural, multilingual classrooms.
Register now! Space is limited.
Fee without Course Credit: $100.00
Fee with Course Credit: $170.00
