Wednesday Writing Workouts - a new offering from Teaching Authors

Teaching Authors, the group blog of April Halprin Wayland, Carmela Martino, Esther Hershenhorn, Jeanne Marie Grunwell Ford, Jill Esbaum, and Mary Ann Rodman has launched a new regular feature:

The Wednesday Writing Workout.

Each week, they are sharing writing exercises designed for we writers (and that teachers can also use  with their students!)

This week, Esther Hershenhorn shares revision tips from a mystery author (including how to kill your adverbs and finding twenty words to cut on every page),

Last week, April Halprin Wayland walked us through the inspiration of writing a tree poem,

and earlier in the month, Jill Esbaum got us playing with setting and Carmela Martino had another mystery author teach us to 'give Logic a Lollipop.'

It's a great new resource to check out.

Illustrate and Write On,
