26th ACELT Bi-Annual Conference
Writing Creatively: The English Teacher as Writer
03 February 2001
What goes into the writing of a poem, an essay, a short story? Who better to ask than the writers themselves? And what better way to find out than to dabble in a little creative writing?
This conference aims to put English teachers behind the writing student’s desk where they can get a taste of the imaginative and creative processes that go into the writing of a poem or a short story.
They will learn firsthand about the discipline and sensitivity called for in the field of non-academic writing straight from the writers themselves – both accomplished and upcoming writers in the field of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction.
This hands-on experience of writing creatively hopes to leave English teachers with valuable insights into the creative uses of language in both literary and non-literary texts and reflections on how better to explore such texts with their own students in their classrooms.
